The Institute

PRESENTATION

Research at IBPM aims at understanding fundamental biological mechanisms and processes, as well as developing their biotechnological applications in various fields of human health and its relation to the environment (see Research areas).
IBPM has a highly multidisciplinary, integrated vision that is rooted in its
history (read more ↓)

The Institute is organized in several laboratories that develop diversified approaches in chemistry, biochemistry, structural biology, bioinformatics, genetics, molecular and cellular biology, molecular pathology, immunology (see Resources).

The location of IBPM within La Sapienza University fosters collaborations and scientific synergies with several University departments. Teaching and training activities are an integral part of the institute's life (see Training)

Staff
The IBPM includes 79 staff members:

64 research scientists     (see research staff personal pages)
11 technicians                 (see technical staff)
  4 administrative staff    (see administration)
and many postdoctoral research fellows, PhD students, trainees, graduates and undergraduates from MSc and BSc degree courses.

The laboratories
IBPM laboratories are hosted in various Departments of Sapienza University to develop multidisciplinary research (go to Laboratories):

- Laboratory of Chemistry (LC): at the Dept. of Chemistry, Edificio Cannizzaro
- Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LBM): at the Dept of Biochemical Sciences Rossi-Fanelli
