To maintain our level of excellence and remain at the forefront of progress, at Vital-IT we actively participate, as a partner, in research projects (FNS, EU, CTI, SystemsX.ch, etc.), which span from a few months to several years. Seven senior scientists lead research and collaborative development projects at Vital-IT. Their skills are inter-complementary and span three domains of expertise: computational sciences, software development, and biological and medical data analysis.

  • Roberto Fabbretti designs state-of-the-art high-performance computing infrastructures at an economic scale and in line with the requirements of our user community.
  • Christian Iseli is an expert in development of distributable software packages that are maintainable. This includes optimizing and developing innovative algorithms.
  • Nicolas Guex is an expert in algorithm development and data analysis, and has expertise in systems biology, structural and large-scale genomics analysis.
  • Robin Liechti is an expert is scientific data visualization and innovative interface development
  • Marco Pagni is an expert in genome-scale model support, web-service for biologists and microbial and metagenomics studies.
  • Jerome Dauvillier is an expert in data analysis in neuroscience and the aging process at the intersection of genetics and phenotypic data.
  • Mark Ibberson is an expert in data analysis in diabetes, cardiovascular disease and comorbidities using integrated network biology.
  • Brian Stevenson is an expert in genomics-based analysis of variations in cancer and genetic diseases.
