Elia Stupka's Biography

Elia Stupka, Co-Director/Head, San Raffaele Scientific Institute

Dr. Elia Stupka started his genomics career as part of the Ensembl group and the core human genome analysis team in Hinxton, where he participated to the completion and analysis of the human genome (Nature,2001). He was then asked to setup and manage the Fugu genome bioinformatics team at IMCB, Singapore where he completed the Fugu genome project (Science, 2003). He then moved to the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine, where he began combining his experience in bioinformatics with a molecular biology lab, working on the understanding of non-coding DNA, and where he also collaborated with the Fantom3 project (Science, 2005). He was then Scientific Director at UCL Genomics, University College London, where he began applying NGS approaches on both rare and complex disease projects and exploring epigenomics approaches to identify novel biomarkers. Since 2011 he has been involved in a very challenging project to develop a new research center at San Raffaele Research Hospital in Milan, Italy, the first translational genomics and bioinformatics center of its kind in Italy, serving a community of over 1,500 clinical and basic scientists across a wide range of clinical applications, crowning his dream of applying the knowlege of the human genome developed in 2001 in a clinical context for the benefit of the patients.

NGS is becoming common place in a clinical environment. Generating data, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. A talk on  successes, failures and challenges ahead, if we want to turn NGS into the holy grail of "personalized medicine''.
