Giacomo Lo Presti


Giacomo Lo Presti, born in Grotte (AG), obtained his degree in Electrical Engineering applied to Biomedicine at the University of Bologna. The has later focused in artificial intelligence, robotic programming, bio-IT and genomic data science through the education network provided by the Stanford University, the John Hopkin University, the University of Michigan in USA and University of Toronto in Canada. Since 2013 Giacomo Lo Presti, who has been alternating research with teaching, has worked with the ISOPROG project towards the patient’s health and genomic data integration. The preliminar patient health-IT structure that is at the core of the ISOPROG workflow, co-designed by him has been presented at the ESBB LIMS and biobanking congress in Milano on February 2014.
