Interview with Patrizia Popoli



We need rules in order to construe the medicine of the future and to be able to understand, recognise, study and govern phenomena.


The phenomena that will be influencing future medicine are viewed as complex and never fully “binary”.


Looking for a medicine that is closer to and more ready to meet users’ most distant and different needs.


Studying it, being able to interpret and govern it so that it does not dominate us is such an ancient lesson.

💧Quale l’impatto dell’emergenza climatica sulle terre coltivate? Osserviamo, e lo faremo ...sempre di più, danni diretti e indiretti legati alle variazioni di temperatura e alla diminuzione delle risorse idriche.

Difficulty in accessing sources, low statistical literacy, poor education in the basics of study and research methods, authority bias, overworking: @andcapocci and @RebeccaDeFiore talk about the challenges science journalists face in Italy 👇

Nell’ultimo decennio sono aumentati gli studi che si concentrano sul periodo di vita che anticipa... il decesso. La letteratura così arricchita “ci dice che i coniugi si influenzano reciprocamente nelle loro storie di salute”.

Bisogna parlare di cambiamento climatico o di emergenza climatica? Lo sforzo fatto finora è stato ...efficace? Anche le azioni dei singoli possono contribuire?
