RoTechnology on the Day of Research in Memory of Umberto Veronesi, II Edition

Our CEO, Rodolfo Grimani, participated in the # Lombardia√® Research Day on 8 November at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, where the ‘Lombardia √® ricerca’ award ceremony was held, which awards 1 million euros to the best discovery science in the field of Life Sciences, this year dedicated to precision medicine.
On this occasion, the vice president of the Lombardy Region, Fabrizio Sala, held the honor of officially appointing Gerry Scotti as the Lombardy Region’s ambassador for Research.
70% of the 1 million prize was destined to develop activities in Lombardy.
The Vice President of the Lombardy Region and Councilor for Research, Innovation, University, Export and Internationalization of Enterprises Fabrizio Sala, together with President Attilio Fontana, presented the Prize to Professors Michele De Luca, Graziella Pellegrini and the German surgeon Tobias Hirsch.
A jury of 15 scientists of international caliber unanimously decreed the three winners. The German-Italian team convinced the jury, chaired by Professor Giuseppe Remuzzi, for ex-vivo gene therapy for Epidermolysis Bullosa or ‘Butterfly Children Syndrome’, of which they are pioneers in the world.
Rotechnology is happy and committed to making its small but important contribution to the growth of research in Italy.
