Dr Alfredo Iacoangeli receives Genes 2022 Young Investigator Award in Human Genomics and Genetic Diseases

Dr Alfredo Iacoangeli was recognised by the journal, Genes, for his contributions to the fields of human genomics and genetic diseases.

Alfredo Iacoangeli

Dr Iacoangeli is a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Biostatistics and Health Informatics and the Department of Basic and Clinical Neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London.

He has gained an international reputation for his highly innovative work in analysis of genetic and clinical data, particularly in relation to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). He is also a highly regarded teacher and supervisor and has attracted funding to put together an active bioinformatics team.

I am truly honoured to receive this prize. I published my very first senior author article in Genes, so a few years later I can definitely say it has brought me good luck! I want to thank my team, mentors and colleagues from the departments of Biostatistics and Neuroscience who made the work that led to the award possible.
