Bio: Dr. Remo Ruffini is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Rome "Sapienza", since 1978. He is President of the International Centre for Relativistic Astrophysics (ICRA) and initiated the International Relativistic Astrophysics Ph.D (IRAP) a common graduate school program of several universities and research institutes for the education of theoretical astrophysicists. In addition, he created an international network in which a number of states decided to collaborate in the field of astrophysics (ICRANet).
