A resource for Italian biomedical research
The National Institute of Molecular Genetics (INGM) “Romeo and Enrica Invernizzi” is a research institute with focus on molecular genetics and on other methods of detection and diagnosis. INGM research began in 2007 and still continues inside the campus of the historic Policlinico Hospital, located in the very centre of Milan, in the “Romeo and Enrica Invernizzi” building. The Foundation has achieved significant scientific results in understanding the mechanisms of regulation of gene expression and interactions between the immune system and tumor cells.
As of today, INGM stands as a center of excellence in biomedical research both at national and international level.
