Giovanni PORCELLANA
Medical Applications Officer
Description: 

Giovanni joined the Knowledge Transfer Group, Medical Applications Section, in 2016.

Before that, he worked for more than two years at CERN with the TERA Foundation, an Italian research institution. He focused mostly on linac design for hadrontherapy and radioisotopes production for the construction of a hospital in Italy.
