New Scientific Director for San Camillo, Institute for Health Care Research and Rehabilitation


Professor Annalena Venneri, Head of the Translational Neuropsychology Group, has been appointed as the new Scientific Director of the Institute for Research, Hospitalisation and Health Care (IRCCS) San Camillo Hospital in Venice.

Professor Venneri is one of a few women in Italy to receive this prestigious position. The appointment is also an example of how a high-profile professional carrying out research in the UK can make a contribution to research in Italy.

Professor Venneri has vast experience of studies in Italy and has spent more than twenty years in the UK previously holding appointments at the Universities of Hull and Aberdeen. She collaborates on the study of neurodegenerative disease with leading research groups in Italy, UK, Belgium, Spain, Canada and the United States.

Already well known at the San Camillo, as Head of Laboratory of Functional Neuroimaging, she will now be responsible for the co-ordination and direction of scientific activities, research and fund raising at all levels.
