The way to cure it.
This is the founding principle of research made in IFOM, the
FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology: a centre focusing on the
study of the molecular mechanisms underlying tumors formation and
development. In this scientific field knowledge is the ultimate
condition for medical care.
Molecular oncology at its best.
Researchers from all over the world pursue this one and only
aim, in a multidisciplinary way and in different research fields:
from molecular and cell biology to structural and computational
biology, from genomics to proteomics, from molecular diagnostics to
pharmacogenomics, from immunology to metabolomics.
Doing research together.
Cooperating with biomedical organizations as well as local
institutions on one side, developing a network of strategic
alliances with the most competitive international research centres
on the other: this is deeply embedded in IFOM DNA. Doing research
together is meant to undertake joint projects aiming at
accelerating the acquisition of new knowledge and its
