IBFM main site is located in LITA building Segrate and is part of the Research Area Milano 4 (ARMI 4)
IBFM labs main research areas are Exercise Physiology , neurophysiology , molecular biology, medical and biological image processing . Molecular imaging integrates ex-vivo and in vivo techniques (-omics, pre-clinical rodents imaging) by means of algorithms developed in house to investigate multifactorial diseases and the selection of new biomarkers in th fields of neurology, cardiology, oncology. Existing collaboration agreement with IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele ( PET imaging) and AST Niguarda MRI.
