ICGEB in the news

These first months of 2020 have witnessed the explosion of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Notwithstanding the enormous efforts made by China to contain the infection, the virus is ramping up in several countries, with Italy currently in lockdown. In the current health emergency, the ICGEB is implementing measures to contain the spread of the virus. Essential activities are continuing in the labs under the strict guidance of our PIs.
