Institute of Cell Biology and Neurobiology
The Institute of Cell Biology and Neurobiology (IBCN) of the National Research Council (CNR) was established in December 2010 building on a partnership among CNR scientists with complementary expertise, backgrounds and interests, from the Institute of Neurobiology and Molecular Medicine, the Institute of Cell Biology (both founded by the Nobel Laureate Rita Levi Montalcini) and the Rome Section of the Institute of Neuroscience.
The Institute is part of the International Scientific Campus "Adriano Buzzati-Traverso" and coordinates the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) animal facility and the Monterotondo Mouse Clinic for the production, phenotypic analysis, cryo-preservation and distribution of mutant mouse strains as models of human pathologies.
The Institute also hosts the Monterotondo outstation of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and a Research Unit of the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB).
The idea of this multi-task joint venture is mainly to remove traditional barriers among disciplines, bringing together different expertise and develop a shared, more innovative ground for intellectual, experimental and technological exchange among scientists.
The personnel of the Institute comprises about 100 members of staff (scientists, technicians and administrative personnel) plus a cohort of post-doctoral scientists, PhD students and associated members, working together within a campus of about 16 acres and located in the northern outskirts of Rome and at the "Fondazione Santa Lucia"Research Center in the southern area of Rome.
Address: "A.Buzzati-Traverso" International Campus, Via E. Ramarini, 32 – 00015 Monterotondo – Rome
Sections: Via del Fosso di Fiorano, 64/65 - 00143 Rome; Via Anguillarese 301 – S. Maria di Galeria – Rome.
