CNR (National Council of Research)

The National Research Council (CNR) is a public organization; its duty is to carry out, promote, spread, transfer and improve research activities in the main sectors of knowledge growth and of its applications for the scientific, technological, economic and social development of the Country.

The Institute of Molecular Bioimaging and Physiology will partecipate with its competencies in the following fields: Biomedical Engineering: biomedical signals/images processing methods, for the characterization of the physiopathological mechanisms related to a disease (neurological, cardiovascular, oncological), for monitoring disease progression/regression, for evaluation of treatment efficacy. Physical exercise: Characterization of cardiovascular, ventilatory and metabolic responses to the physical exercise in different environmental conditions; mechanical and energetical aspects of movement and locomotion in healthy and pathological subjects. Biology/biochemistry: quantitative immuno-enzymatic methods of the main biomarkers related to patho-physiological conditions; real time PCR analysis of the expression levels of the patho-physiological biomarkers.

The Institute for Energetics and Interphases will provide at the LL disposal comprehensive equipment for materials synthesis and characterisation, possibilities of creating non-standard test benches for new devices, and rapid prototyping by ABS 3D printing.

The Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials will provide at the LL a comprehensive and multidisciplinary expertise in the design and preparation of advanced and innovative polymeric materials within the following international platforms: Sustainable Chemistry, Advanced Materials and Key Enabling Technologies and Nanomedicine. CNR-IPCB will also provide all the available facilities for the characterization of innovative materials.

The Institute for Industrial Technologies focuses its competences on: microsystems, mechatronic, robotic, control, diagnosis, monitoring and new generation supervising systems, virtual design methods of products and processes and new organizational, management and business paradigms.


IRCCS E. Medea

The only Scientific Institute in Italy recognized for research and rehabilitation in childhood and adolescence. Our mission is to promote biomedical and health research in close association with clinical practice to test new rehabilitation techniques and improve existing ones.

The wide network of centers belonging to Association La Nostra Famiglia is a good testing ground for quantitatively and qualitatively sound research, especially in rehabilitation.
