IIGM (www.iigm.it) is located at the FPO IRCCS Candiolo Cancer Institute (www.research.fpoircc.it). The main goal of IIGM is to foster and develop excellence in human genomic research and education, with special reference to genomic variability in multifactorial diseases, with a strong focus on immunology and cancer. The institute provides high-level scientific education, and access to state-of-the-art research facilities.
Research: The lab addresses fundamental aspects of immune responses, related to memory T cell differentiation and long-term protective immunity in infections and cancer. Our research aims to understand how T lymphocytes integrate complex environmental stimuli into specific epigenetic and differentiation programs, which specify cell fate commitment and function. The research’s goal is to use this knowledge to develop novel molecular targets and strategies for new vaccines, the prevention and treatment of cancer, in the new field of cancer immunotherapy.
