An Italian epidemiologist of international renown

"Each of us is the encounters we make in life. Adriano Buzzati-Traverso and Luca Cavalli-Sforza in Pavia imprinted me with the interest in quantitative methods in medicine which I developed into research in Pisa working with Luigi Donato, as of today a friendly presence.

My critical  conversion to epidemiology was guided by Richard Doll, who became a lifelong professional and personal relation, and my three years with Giulio Alfredo Maccacaro in Milan and seventeen years with Lorenzo Tomatis in Lyon have profoundly shaped what I am".

Danielle Ofri talks about her work, her readings, her passions and her daily routine. | Continua...
