The Biophysics Institute

The Biophysics Institute (IBF) was established in May 2001 from the merging of five research centres of Italy's National Research Council (CNR). The Institute is based in Genoa and has four separate research divisions located in Milan, Pisa, Palermo and Trento.

The Institute is directed by Dr. Michael Pusch and currently has a staff of 95, comprising 53 research scientists, 27 technical staff and 15 administrative & support staff. In addition, approximately 90 Research Associates, fellows, doctoral students and trainees are currently involved in IBF’s research activity.
