The research areas of the Fondazione Don Gnocchi are specialized in the sectors of biomedicine, biotechnology and clinical experimentation to discover new methods and new technologies for the rehabilitation and reduction of disability conditions.

BIOENGINEERING AND BIOTECHNOLOGY FOR REHABILITATION AND SOCIAL INTEGRATION

Scientific Head: Prof. Maurizio Ferrarin
This Research Area is focused on the investigation, development, advancement and clinical validation of innovative models, methods and tools within the domains of bioengineering and biotechnology, with a distinct on rehabilitation medicine.

NEUROIMAGING, MOLECULAR AND DIGITAL MEDICINE IN REHABILITATION

Scientific Head: Prof. Mario Clerici
Neuroimaging and decision making support strategies based on both biological measurements (genetics, immunology and virology microbiology) and on digital data (morpho functional imaging and e Health).

REHABILITATION OF NEUROLOGICAL DISABILITY, NEURODEVELOPMENTAL AND
MUSCULOSKELETAL ORIGIN

Scientific Head: Prof. Sandro Sorbi
The aim of the research area is to explore novel prognosis markers, develop new treatments, and evaluate the effectiveness of rehabilitation pathways inneurological, neurodevelopmental, and musculoskeletal disorders.

REHABILITATION OF CARDIO RESPIRATORY DISABILITIES

Scientific Head: Prof. Claudio Macchi
Rehabilitation for patients suffering from cardio respiratory pathologies, both in post acute and chronic conditions. The research area aims to improve rehabilitation care in patients with cardio respiratory disabilities with the goal of achieving a comprehensive functional, psychological and social recovery, or alternatively slowing the progression of the underlying disease.
