Associate Professor of Medical Genetics at the Humanitas University since its opening. Rosanna Asselta graduated in Biology and received her PhD in Molecular Genetics Applied to Medical Sciences at the University of Milan.
In 2005, she became Assistant Professor in Molecular Biology at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Milan. Prof. Asselta acquired over the years a strong expertise in statistical analysis of genetic data, thanks to her experience of two years in the Department of Molecular Medicine University of Helsinki and at the “Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT” of Boston.

International Courses:
During her doctorate, and then in the post-doctoral program, she was able to complete her training following courses at the Turku Centre for Biotechnology (2004), the European School of Genetic Medicine (2005), Helsinki University (2006), Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (2008), and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (2009).

Prof. Asselta received prestigious awards from:
The Foundation Telethon (2001),
The European Molecular Biology Organization (2004),
The European Science Foundation (2004).
In 2005, the Early Career Investigator Award was also awarded (as part of the international program “Bayer Hemophilia program”).
