Istituto di Genetica Molecolare “Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza” – CNR
The Institute of Molecular Genetics (IGM) belongs to the network of the CNR Institutes of the Department of Biosciences. It 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, the Institute was joined by a new section, hosted within the Orthopedic Rizzoli Institute in Bologna. It is part of the Institute network of the Department of Biomedical Sciences of the CNR.
The IGM-CNR is staffed by about 60 units of personnel (researchers, technicians and administrative officers). Every year about 80 young investigators (students, PhDs and postdocs) also work at the Institute.
