Sara Moccia received the M.Sc. degree cum laude in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI), Italy, in 2014, and the European Ph.D. degree cum laude in Bioengineering from Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Italy, in 2018. During her PhD, she was hosted at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Germany. She was Postdoctoral Researcher at Università Politecnica dele Marche (UNIVPM) untill 2021, when she became Assistant Professor at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA), Italy, where she leads the «Artificial Intelligence for Medical Image Analysis» laboratory, inside the BioRobotics Institute. In 2022, she got the National Scientific Habilitation (ASN) to apply for permanent positions of Associate Professor in (i) Bioengineering and (ii) Computer Engineering. The aim of her research activities is to unlock the potential of deep learning for the analysis of a wide range of medical images to support clinicians during the actual clinical and surgical procedures. She received a number of awards for her research, including the “Gruppo Nazionale di Bioingegneria & Patron” Award for her Ph.D. thesis. In 2021, she was granted with a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – Individual Global Fellowship (MSCA-IF-GF) and in 2022 with a L’Oréal Italia for Women and Science in collaboration with the Italian National Commission for UNESCO fellowship. She is currently leading for SSSA a regional project. She is author of more than 50 peer-reviewed ISI journal paper, including Medical Image Analysis and IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. She serves as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Medical Robotics and Bionics, and Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing.
