Welcome to IGB-CNR

The Institute of Genetics and Biophysics Adriano Buzzati-Traverso (IGB-ABT) is part of the Department of Biomedical Sciences (DSB) of the National Research Council (CNR). The IGB-ABT is a worldwide recognized institution devoted to basic and applied research. The research activity aims at the comprehension of fundamental genetic and epigenetic mechanisms controlling mammalian cell state and cell identity from  embryonic development to post-natal life, both in normal and pathological conditions, through a multidisciplinary, convergent and integrated approach. This approach is applied to different research fields: stem cell biology, embryonic development and organogenesis, neurobiology, human genetics, molecular oncology, angiogenesis and immunology.

Research Areas

The research carried out at the IGB aims to understand 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. These activities are organized in two main areas:

Developmental Biology and Genetics

Molecular Mechanisms of Human Diseases
