We promote excellence in basic and applied research to promote the development of the national economy. Our research, focused on collaboration between different science fields, is based on the following research domains:
is focused on massive simulations of physical systems, repeated numerous times to generate robust statistics and data mining of vast datasets to identify unexpected patterns.
is devoted to developing advanced genetic, molecular, electrophysiological, computational, imaging, and perturbation tools for dissecting the microscopic neural processes underlying brain function.
includes new sustainable/biodegradable materials, nanocomposites, 2D materials, nanofabrication technologies and nanodevices, and new colloidal chemistry approaches.
Our research activity is strengthed by a wide network of laboratories all over Italy
The Center for Cultural Heritage Technology aims at researching and promoting new technologies for analysis and preservation of Cultural Heritage, both tangible and intangible, expanding and improving current approaches.
The CHT approach is based on a multidisciplinary vision in collaboration with research hospitals and clinical institutions, in order to design and develop new technologies or improve the existing ones.
Our center revolves around topics of biomedical interest where technological innovation is key to reach the goals, such as neurodegenerative disorders and brain tumours
CMI is dedicated to the investigation, development, characterization, and exploitation of materials at the nanoscale, with a special focus on interface effects.
Our center is focused on neuroscience in human subjects and in animal models, including psychophysical techniques, functional imaging, trans-cranial stimulation and computational approaches.
The Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Healthcare@CRIB develops materials and technologies to engineer bio-logically inspired platforms and systems for applications in the biomedical sector.
Research activities at the IIT Center for Synaptic Neuroscience and Technology apply multidisciplinary approaches to study brain function and diseases, and seek to develop novel technologies for neuroscience applications.
The Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies of IIT@UniLe is a large scale facility for bio-molecular and organic materials and nanoscale biomolecular interactions.
Center for Convergent Technologies, located in Morego (GE), is the largest research infrastructure of the whole IIT network and it is where the Foundation started its activity in 2006.
The Center for Genomic Science applies modern genomic technologies towards a better understanding of complex biological processes and diseases, with particular emphasis on Cancer.
The mission of the center is "innovation", therefore the goal of the CNST scientific team is to transfer new basic knowledge into new applications.
In this center, roboticists and their research lines will share a common space to foster collaboration and integration. We enable experimentation in indoor and outdoor in dedicated spaces simulating the operation environments where our robots have to operate.
The center has embraced sustainability in its mission statement and is engaged in the global scientific and technological endeavours to address the sustainability challenges
