Funds got

  1. Funding received from Fondazione Italiana Sclerosi Multipla (FISM), Università di Genova (Monica Biggio), Università Campus Bio-Medico, ISTC-CNR. The project uses artificial intelligence for studying neural mechanisms underlying the emergence of multiple sclerosis.
  2. Funding received from the Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria
    Senese, ISS (Livia Cosentino), IRCCS Oasi Troina and ISTC-CNR, in the field of rare diseases. The project (called ANTICIPATED) uses artificial intelligence for the prediction of symptom onset and phenotypic variability in Rett syndrome.
