Manolis Kellis | Breaking the code of human disease

11 May, 2023

Could we eventually overcome Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, heart disease, obesity, cancer, and the many more diseases that plague our species? Before giving any answer, we should realize that we need to understand the mechanisms underlying these human diseases.

Professor Manolis Kellis and his research team do exactly that. More specifically, the world-recognized scientist in the field of precision medicine, disease genomics, and computational biology studies how genetic differences between individuals lead to disease differences at the cellular and molecular level.

In his breakthrough talk at the Athens Science Festival platform entitled “Breaking the code of human disease”, the leading Greek scientist presents the opportunities to design new diagnostic methods for the treatment of incurable, until today, diseases.

The discussion was moderated by Zoe Cournia.
