About us

· On November 15, 2007, the Compagnia di San Paolo, the University of Torino and the Politecnico di Torino set up the Human Genetics Foundation - Torino (HuGeF-Torino).

· The goal is to develop research excellence and set up advanced training courses in the field of human genetics, genomics and proteomics.

· After the legal recognition in 2008, the HuGeF-Torino starts its activities at the Molecular Biotechnology Center of the University of Turin.

· In 2017 HuGeF changes its name into "Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine" (IIGM), and set up a new strategic plan more oriented towards translational medicine, precision medicine and biomedicine.

· In 2019 the University of Turin and the Polytechnic of Turin relinquish their rights as founding partners. IIGM becomes a single-member entity of the Compagnia di San Paolo.

· From July 2019, after signing a joint agreement with the "Fondazione del Piemonte per l'Oncologia - IRCCS di Candiolo" for the establishment of a new joint research platform, IIGM moves to its operational headquarters to the 3rd and 4th floors of the first tower of the Institute for Cancer Research and Treatment in Candiolo.
