The Team


Andrea Ganna - Team Lead

Andrea is an EMBL-group leader at FIMM. Previously he did his post-doc at the Analytical and Translation Genetic Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School/Broad Institute and his PhD at Karolinska Institute. His research interests lie on the intersection between epidemiology, genetics and statistics. Andrea have authored and co-authored both methodological and applied papers focused on leveraging large scale epidemiological datasets to identify novel socio-demographic, metabolic and genetic markers of common complex diseases. He has extensive expertise in statistical genetics and have been working with large-scale exome and genome sequencing data, focusing on ultra-rare variants in coding and non-coding regions. His research vision is to integrate genetic data and information from electronic health record/national health registries to enhance early detection of common diseases and public health interventions.


Vincent Llorens - IT specialist

Vincent has graduated as an engineer from INSA Lyon with a master's degree in bioinformatics.

After his studies, Vincent worked as software developer and system administrator. He has extensive expertises in cloud computing and database design. He worked at CCIN2P3 data center, helping to migrate CERN computing to the cloud, as part of a h2020-founded project.

He is currently working at FIMM building the Risteys web portal to explore nation-wide disease trajectories and allow exploration of Finngen longitudinal data.
