The Institute of Molecular Biology and Pathology (IBPM) develops cutting-edge research with a highly multidisciplinary approach, based on the  integration of diversified, complementary scientific and methodological expertise. 

Major research themes  cover the design and synthesis of bioactive compounds,  the characterization of macromolecules and cellular systems, and  the genetic and molecular dissection of complex processes using a wide range of animal and plant models. These studies have relevant biotechnological and nanotechnological applications in the fields of  human health, the environment and agrifood. 

The laboratories are located  within the University of Rome La Sapienza.
