Edoardo Boncinelli is full professor of Biology and Genetics at the University Vita Salute in Milan He has been Director of SISSA ISAS International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste and Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology of Development at the Scientific Institute San Raffaele in Milan A physicist by training, he worked in the field of genetics and molecular biology of higher animals and man, first in Naples, at the International Institute of Genetics and Biophysics IIGB of CNR, where he progressed through most of his scientific career, and subsequently in Milan He is a member of Academia Europaea and EMBO, the European Molecular Biology Organisation, and a past president of the Italian Society of Biophysics and Molecular Biology In 2005 he received the EMBO Award for Communication in the Life Sciences.His research interests, all revolving around embryonic development of Vertebrates, range from the very early determination of body axis to the formation and subdivision of the cerebral cortex His personal interests have progressively drifted toward the study of mind and higher mental functions He wrote some popular books on biology A caccia di geni Di Renzo Editore , I nostri geni Einaudi and Il cervello, la mente e l anima Mondadori In 2000 he wrote Le Forme della Vita Einaudi , and three debate books with Umberto Galimberti Einaudi , Aldo Carotenuto Bompiani and Umberto Bottazzini Cortina In 2001 he published Prima lezione di biologia Laterza and Genoma Il grande libro dell uomo Mondadori in 2002 Io sono tu sei Mondadori nel 2003 Tempo delle cose, tempo della vita, tempo dell anima Laterza in 2004 Il posto della scienza Mondadori In 2005 he published Verso l immortalita Cortina with Galeazzo Sciarretta, Sani per scelta Corriere della Sera and Prodigi quotidiani Boroli In 2006 L anima della tecnica Rizzoli , La magia della scienza Archinto and Idee per diventare genetista Zanichelli In 2007 Il male Mondadori In 2008 L etica della vita Rizzoli and Dialogo su etica e scienza with Emanuele Severino Editrice San Raffaele Currently a columnist for Le Scienze, the italian edition of Scientific American, and Il Corriere della Sera.Edoardo Boncinelli has significantly contributed to our understanding of biological mechanisms of embryonic development in higher animals and man In 1985, he was among the first to grasp the significance of the novel discoveries on the genetic control of drosophila development and to try and apply them to the study of human beings His group identified and characterised a gene family, the 39 HOX homeogenes, controlling the correct development of the trunk, from neck to tail These findings are recognised as landmarks of the biology of this time, if not of everytime From 1991, he undertook the study of the developing brain and cerebral cortex, identifying a couple of additional homeogene families playing a major role in the underlying processes, in health and disease.
