CERM is an Infrastructure of the European and Italian roadmaps Instruct




Integrated Structural Biology Infrastructure


Instruct (Integrated Structural Biology) is the dynamic hub of structural biology providing an integrated infrastructure of cutting-edge technology, scientific expertise and pioneering training.

European Flagship Projects:



IT Future of Medicine (ITFoM) - FET Flagship (Future and Emerging Technologies Flagship) Pilot

The ITFoM movie


CERM cooperates at the international levels with several universities and private industries with which it is involved in numerous research projects funded by the European Commission:
