Sergio Cerutti. Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Department of Bioengineering, Politecnico di Milano, Italy. In the period 2000-2006 he has been the Chairman of the Department and currently he is the Chairman of the Programs of Biomedical Engineering. His research interests are mainly in the following topics: biomedical signal processing (ECG, blood pressure and respiration signals, cardiovascular variability signals, EEG and evoked potentials), neurosciences and cardiovascular modelling. In his research activity he has put emphasis on the integration of information at different modalities, at different sources and at different scales in various physiological systems. He is actually Fellow Member of IEEE, EAMBES and AIMBE. He has been Visiting Professor at Harvard-MIT Division Health Science and Technology, Boston, USA, for an overall period of one year as well as for a period of four months at IST – Department of Physics, Lisbon, Portugal. He is the Author of more than 500 international scientific contributions (more than 250 on indexed scientific journals). In 2009 he received the IEEE-EMBS Academic Career Achievement Award.
