BioISI

BioISI is a new institute, merging 3 research centres (BioFIG, CFMC, LabMAg) officially created in January 2015 to understand and address biological questions using integrative -Systems- approaches at the forefront of life sciences research at both national and international scales. 

By gathering scientists from bio-, physics and computational sciences, BioISI benefits from a unique multidisciplinary environment which (together with its core-facilities) is offered to its researchers and advanced students. This fosters creative thinking to solve problems through integrative approaches.
