The Ebris Foundation was born in 2012 from a joint initiative of the Fondazione Scuola Medica Salernitana and the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) of the Harvard Medical School, one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Chaired by Alessio Fasano, a researcher recognized and appreciated all over the world for his expertise in gut microbiome and its impact on human health and professor of Pediatrics, Gastroenterology and Nutrition at the MGH for Children, the Foundation has become over the years a center of national and international excellence completely dedicated to multidisciplinary scientific research.

Furthermore, Dr. Giulio Corrivetti, Vice President of the EBRIS foundation, is a nationally recognized expert in human behavior, including depression. In the Foundation’s laboratories, high profile researchers and scientists cooperate in order to understand the molecular basis of human diseases and translate laboratory discoveries into new diagnostic and therapeutic targets and drug delivery systems that can not only improve the quality of life of patients but go towards the overall well-being of humankind.

The Foundation is the lead partner of OPADE. It has the task of monitoring and managing the administrative and organizational aspects of the project so that all the partners involved respect their obligations and carry out the planned activities.

While the Fondazione Scuola Medica Salernitana aims to promote the scientific and cultural values and traditions of the ancient medical school, the MGH is an internationally recognized teaching and research hospital.
