Giovanna Ferraioli, MD is a researcher at Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo, Medical School University of Pavia, (Italy). Her research interests include elastography in diffuse liver diseases, noninvasive assessment of liver steatosis, ultrasound contrast agents, and Doppler in portal hypertension. Dr. Ferraioli received her medical degree from Naples University, Italy. In 1988-89 she completed a research fellowship at the Yale University, USA, with Prof. Kenneth JW Taylor and Prof. Roberto J Groszmann. She is the coordinator of the Ultrasound School at Fondazione IRCCS San Matteo Hospital Foundation, Medical School of the University of Pavia (Italy), and co-director of the EFSUMB Ultrasound Learning Center at the same Institution. Dr. Ferraioli has delivered several invited lectures in her area of expertise to international audiences. She is member of the scientific editorial board of European Radiology, International Journal of Radiology, World Journal of Hepatology and she’s a referee for more than 40 international journals. She has been appointed General Secretary of MASU (Mediterranean and African Society of Ultrasound) for the triennium 2011-2013 and 2013-2015. Dr. Ferraioli has been a member of the Education Committee of the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) for the triennium 2013-2015, a member of the WFUMB expert panel for the guidelines on elastography released by WFUMB and a member of the expert panel for the use of elastography in the assessment of diffuse liver disease convened by the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU). She’s a member of the EFSUMB expert team for the guidelines on liver elastography and a member of the QIBA initiative in shear wave speed in diffuse liver diseases. Dr. Ferraioli has published several scientific articles in international peer-reviewed journals, including Hepatology, Gastroenterology, Gut, Journal of Hepatology, Digestive and Liver Disease, Radiology, European Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology, Ultrasound in Medicine & Biology.
Dario Pasini obtained his first degree from the University of Pavia in 1992, and a PhD in Chemistry in 1996 from the University of Birmingham, UK (advisor: Prof. Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016). After postdoctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley, USA, in the group of Prof. J. M. J. Fréchet (1997–1999), he joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pavia in 2000 (Associate Professor from 2015, with Habilitation to Full Professor), where he continues to develop his scientific interests in the fields of organic, supramolecular and polymeric materials. He spent time as a visiting professor at the University of Geneva (Prof. S. Matile, 2005) and at the University of South Carolina (Prof. L. Shimizu, 2011), the latter after the award of a Journal Grant for International Authors from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Research interests: · Ecology of benthic invertebrates of lagoon and marine environments, particularly peracarid crustaceans and bryozoans · Biological invasions · Indicators and indices of environmental quality · Biological traits analysis of benthic communities · Applications of fuzzy logic to ecological research.
I design prediction models for Molecular Biology and Medicine with Machine Learning.
The application range of my models is broad, ranging from DSCAM Drosophila protein affinity prediction (with Support Vector Machines) to simulation of clinical trajectories in diabetic patients (with Continuous Time Bayesian Networks). I use Java, Perl, R and Matlab.
I study the behavioural ecology of birds and of raptors in particular. My interest is concentrated on the migration ecology of birds and in particular on the influence of climate changes on bird migration and trend analysis, on bird conservation, on the effect of natural barrier on raptor movements, on social interactions and on the effect of weather conditions on the migratory behaviour of birds. I'm involved also in research on the breeding and wintering ecology of raptors.
