About us

The Institute of Molecular Genetics (IGM) was founded in September 2000 by the fusion of two CNR centers in Pavia: the Institute of Biochemical and Evolutionary Genetics (IGBE) and the Centre for Histochemical Studies (CSI). In 2007, a further section in Bologna, previously part of another CNR Institute (ITOI: Institute for Organ Transplantation and Immunology), joined IGM. Thanks to a formal collaboration agreement, the section in Bologna is hosted within the Orthopedic Rizzoli Institute. 

In spite of this complex history, the various components of the Institute share common scientific interests with a high level of methodological complementarity. IGM combines investigations on basic cellular processes, renowned at international level, with applied and translational research.

IGM is mainly involved in basic research on fundamental biological processes. Four main lines of investigation can be identified, on which converge the activities of groups in Pavia e Bologna:  >>>


Research activities

IGM researches on basic biological mechanisms is completed with a likewise qualified translational research. Three main research fields can be identified: 1) molecular analysis of hereditary genetic diseases, 2) molecular characterzation of acquired genetic diseases such as tumors and their prograssion to metastasis, 3) development of techniques and screening of new compounds. Research activities of the various groups are strictly interrelated utilizing the front-line methods of the modern biology (biochemical and pharmacological approach, molecular genetics and biology, cellular biology and bio-computing).  >>>
