Researcher, Translational genomics and bioinformatics
Paolo Provero is a senior research fellow at the Center for Translational Genomics and Bioinformatics at IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele (Milan), and associate professor of Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics at the University of Turin. He is an expert on bioinformatics and computational biology, handles a variety of programming and scripting languages (e.g. C, Perl, R, Unix). He is head of the computational biology unit, within the Department of Molecular Biotechnology and Health Sciences at the University of Turin, which is focused on developing computational methods for gene regulation at the transcriptional (computational analysis of regulatory sequences and transcriptomics data, regulatory variation and evolution) and post-transcriptional (alternative polyadenylation, regulation by microRNA, competing endogenous RNAs) level. Paolo is the author of over 150 publications, counting more than 6000 citations.
He holds a degree in Physics from the University of Turin and a PhD in Physics from University of Genoa. He has been awarded several postdoc fellowships in several universities and Scientific Institutes, e.g. the Theoretical Physics Institute (University of Minnesota), the Department of Theoretical Physics (University of Turin), the Department of Advanced Science and Technology (University of Eastern Piedmont). He has been research fellow for the Biotechnology Foundation (Turin) and Lagrange fellow for the ISI Foundation (Turin). In 2006 he became assistant professor in Computer Science, for the Department of Molecular Biotechnology and Health Sciences, University of Turin. Since 2015, he is the Scientific Director of the Genomics and Bioinformatics Torino University Service.
