• Istituto di Biologia e Patologia Molecolari

The Institute of Molecular Biology and Pathology (IBPM) develops research in fundamental biology, with biotechnological applications in biomedicine, the environment and agrifood using interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches.

IBPM laboratories are hosted within Sapienza University of Rome

MISSION   The IBPM develops research in the following areas:


• Structural bases of protein and nucleic acid function, particularly in regulation of the expression of genes and genomes, of structural and regulatory proteins, and of molecules involved in the immune response;
• Molecular mechanisms of evolution and differentiation in animal and plants and biotechnological and biomedical applications;
• Design, synthesis, biosynthesis, purification and characterization of biologically active molecules: development of innovative chemical and molecular methods; characterization of their mechanisms of action; implications in human health.
