The Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine
Quality research to understand the mechanisms behind rare genetic diseases
Welcome to TIGEM
The Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (TIGEM) is a multidisciplinary research Institute devoted to studying the mechanisms underlying rare genetic diseases and to developing innovative therapies.
With the support of Fondazione Telethon, the European Community and many other funding agencies, TIGEM's research groups are engaged in numerous clinical trials and collaborative projects. In addition, TIGEM's alliances with various universities offer the Institute additional resources and provide opportunities for excellent students.
Our work aims to understand the causes of genetic disorders by unravelling the mechanisms that underpin them. We also aim to discover new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat these diseases, offering alternative and improved outcomes for patients.
