Edoardo Boncinelli, one of Italy's most renowned scientists, is the new director of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), ICTP's next door neighbor and close collaborating institution for research and training. Boncinelli replaces Daniele Amati, who headed SISSA for 15 years. Boncinelli was trained as a physicist at the University of Florence but soon after turned to questions related to molecular biology and genetics. Since 1991 he has headed the Molecular Biology Laboratory at San Raffaele Hospital in Milan. Boncinelli's most recent interests have focussed on neuroscience. Besides his scientific interests, he has written several books for general readers on biology and evolution and is a frequent commentator in the Corriere della Sera, Italy's leading newspaper.
