Armelina Ruggiero is head of the Bioengineering and Medical Informatics Laboratory at the Department of Informatics, Systems and Telematics, University of Genova. She is full professor of Bioengineering at the University of Genova.
Her particular research interests which will contribute to this project are: medical and biological informatics; molecular and cellular engineering, protein structure determination and knowledge modelling of anti-bacterial coatings. With special reference to medical and biological informatics her work relates to medical knowledge based systems, multimedia data-bases and decision support systems, knowledge modelling for automatic reasoning and information retrieval.
The main applications are in chemotherapy, metabolism, radiology, motor rehabilitation, medical records for cardiology; telematic applications to home care, bacteriology and virology. She also has a great experience in managing national and international projects in which she collaborated both with basic biomedical and industrial researchers.
Specifically she has participated to the EPIC project, within the AIM programme of the Third Framework; and to the following projects of the IV Framework: Bioartificial Organ and Tissues (Biomed 2); CONQUEST and ECOLE/GRIP (ACTION cluster, Telematics Applications); Advanced technology in image analysis for telemedicine (LEONARDO); BREAK-IT (Info 2000). In the V Framework, this laboratory is involved in the following projects: BITES, Neural Tissue Engineering and ASIARESIST for the Quality of Life programm; ADHESTOP for the GROWTH program; and Plants in European Masterpieces for the Culture 2000 program.
