DeepHealth External Advisory Board
DeepHealth has set up an independent External Advisory Board (ExtAB) formed by a panel of independent experts selected by DeepHealth partners to cover key areas of the project. The mission of the ExtAB is to provide comments and recommendations regarding requirements, objectives, and development, as well as exploitation and dissemination activities, in order to ensure the maximum impact of the DeepHealth project and the future exploitation of the project results.

Marco Danelutto, Full Professor at Dept. of Computer Science, Univ. of Pisa.
Prof. Marco Danelutto obtained his PhD in Computer Science in 1990 and he is currently a full professor at the University of Pisa, Dept. of Computer Science. His main research interests are in the field of structured parallel programming models for parallel and distributed architectures. His main contribution in the field are relative a) to the development of autonomic techniques supporting management of non-functional properties in structured parallel applications, b) to the exploitation of macro data flow techniques in the implementation of parallel patterns and c) in the design of a set of parallel building blocks suitable to be used, in composition, to support
the implementation of a number of different parallel patterns. Danelutto actively participates in the design and development of FastFlow, a structured, highly efficient, parallel programming framework targeting heterogeneous multi/many core architectures. He participated in different national and international research projects, including EU FP6 CoreGRID (NoE) and GridCOMP (STREP), FP7 STREP projects ParaPhrase and Repara and H2020 RIA RePhrase. In all these projects, he has acted as WP leader and member of the project steering committee. Danelutto is the author of more than 180 papers in international refereed journals and conferences. He has been teaching different courses related to parallel/distributed computing and he is currently vice-responsible for the master’s degree in Computer science and Networking at the University of Pisa and vice-director of the Dept. of Computer Science of the Univ. of Pisa
