Giuseppe Traversa (Rome, Italy)
I am a senior researcher at the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (the Italian National Institute of Health), with an expertise in the field of pharmacoepidemiology, research policies and governance of drug expenditure. From the end of 2005 to mid-2009 I worked as coordinator of the Research and Development Unit of AIFA (the Italian Medicines Agency), in the organization of the first four calls of the program on independent research on drugs. From December 2012 to July 2014 I was appointed in the AIFA Board of Directors, and in the first semester of 2018 I was part of the AIFA Price and Reimbursement Committee (CPR). At present, I am serving as component of the Ministerial group for the governance in the pharmaceutical sector.
