The IGB-ABT aims at the comprehension of fundamental mechanisms controlling mammalian cellular states through a multidisciplinary, convergent and integrated approach. This is achieved through the study of the molecular basis that at the genetic and epigenetic level defines the functional cell identity from the earliest stages of embryonic development until the complete organogenesis and during postnatal life, in normal and pathological contexts. This conceptual ambition is strengthened by the integrated activities of specialized cutting edge technological knowledge in human genetics (particularly of rare diseases), biology of stem cells (embryonic and somatic), embryonic development and organogenesis, molecular oncology, neurobiology, angiogenesis and immunology.
