Welcome / Past Events / All Past Events / Ticino & Grisons Region / VISIT TO THE INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IN BIOMEDICINE (IRB)

The Ticino & Grison region of BRA,  had a fascinating visit of the IRB, the Biomedical Research Centre in Bellinzona.

The Director, Professor Doctor Davide Robbiani and the Deputy Director Professor Doctor Mariagrazia Uguccioni, both also group leaders gave us an introduction to the IRB.

We were most impressed with the presentations of the two young PhD students of an actual IRB research Project.

Before going up to visit several laboratories, we were given a welcome aperitive with a chance to talk to the different Professors and the two PhD students, who had just given us such an interesting illustration of their project.

Everyone in the group found this to be a most instructive and successful afternoon.
It is a real asset for the Ticino to have such an excellent place of learning and expertise particularly in the realms of immunology, cancer, infectious diseases and virology.
