The IGB "Adriano Buzzati-Traverso" is a world wide recognized institution devoted to basic and applied research. The research activity aims at the comprehension of fundamental mechanisms controlling mammalian cellular states through a multudisciplinary, convergent and integrated approach. This is achieved through the study of the molecular basis that at the genetic and epigenetic level defines the functional cell identity from the earliest stages of embryonic development until the complete organogenesis and during postnatal life, in normal pathological contexts. This conceptual ambition is strengthened by the integrated activities of specialized cutting edge technological knowledge in the biology of stem cells (embryonic and somatic), embryonic development and organogenesis, neurobiology, human genetics, molecular oncology, angiogenesis and immunology
The IGB-ABT aims at understanding the molecular basis controlling genetically and epigenetically the cell state and cell identity during embryonic development and post-natal life in normal and pathological conditions.
