Italy_Open doors at the Institute for Pharmacology in Rome

In collaboration with: CNR Dipartimento di scienze biomediche

The event was directed to high school students and teachers. Its purpose was to illustrate the importance of biotechnology in biomedical research. Biotechnology, in fact, is a resource for the development of new drugs, innovative and more effective therapies and new diagnostic tools. The event was organized in a session of 4 lectures. Some issues of great interest were discussed, ranging from stem cells, genetic vaccines to development of animal models to study human disease. The approximately 50 participants were also taken on a guided tour of the laboratories of the institute.
