Background and activities

J Bianco is a molecular biologist and data scientist, working in the intersection of cell biology, biostatistics and synthetic biology. He joined NTNU - Norway in 2012, where he concluded a PhD in Molecular Medicine and currently leads research projects aiming to develop gene therapy methods to treat cardiovascular and muscular diseases, by leveraging on the molecular mechanisms activated by exercise. The projects have the ambitious goal to deliver part of the benefits of exercise artificially, particularly to populations that are unable to exercise.
