The scientific mission of the Institute of Life Sciences covers two macro-areas:
- Agricultural Sciences and Plant Biotechnology
- Biomedical Sciences
Our aim is to provide a multifaceted and challenging scientific environment to a broad spectrum of students: undergraduates, postgraduates and PhD. Courses and research activities span from classical and molecular human and plant biology to preclinical and clinical sciences, plant biotechnology, food quality and nutraceutics, agroecology and agrobiodiversity, and novel sustainable agricultural systems. Strong emphasis is placed on technological innovation.
Lecturers have strong scientific expertise often acquired in a multidisciplinary international environment.
Research carried out in the macro-area Agricultural Sciences and plant Biotechnology addresses two main domains: plant sciences and agronomy, with a focus on various aspects of plant biology, food and energy crops, agrobiodiversity, and agroecosystem management.
Research carried out in the macro-area of Biomedical Sciences addresses the physiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular system, the development of new diagnostic techniques, and the application of nanotechnology to medicine.
Ricercatori dell’Istituto di Scienze della Vita della Scuola Sant’Anna e dell’International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) hanno scoperto che somministrare un piccolo farmaco genetico dopo un infarto stimola la rigenerazione del cuore e la proliferazione delle cellule cardiache
Sir John B. Gurdon è stato ospite della Scuola Sant'Anna: lunedì 13 maggio gli ha conferito il PhD honoris causa in Translational Medicine. La Rettrice Sabina Nuti: “Il mio mandato inizia con una cerimonia prestigiosa. Conferire il PhD honoris causa al Nobel Gurdon è un onore per la nostra istituzione"
