Consortiums and other Services
The Consortium for Human Molecular Genetics offers public and private healthcare facilities, laboratories, physicians, patients and research centres a comprehensive solution to their molecular diagnostic needs: the performance of genetic tests is always accompanied by the technical and clinical support of competent researchers and specialists.
It was established in 2002 at the University of Milano-Bicocca on the initiative of the University of Milano-Bicocca, the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research and the M. Tettamanti Foundation. Currently, the National Institute for the Study and Treatment of Tumours, the Matarelli Foundation and the D'amico Foundation for Renal Disease Research are also members of the Consortium.
The consortium aims to develop microscopy and image analysis, creating a “Centre of excellence” at European level; to collaborate, offering technical and scientific support, with both affiliated Bodies and external groups; to rationalise the economic resources required to introduce advanced techniques and technologies in order to provide state-of-the-art morphological support.
Dr. Antonello Villa is the head of the consortium.

La Tecnomed Foundation of the University of Milano-Bicocca was established in 2005 to carry out instrumental, clinical and support activities for teaching and research in the biomedical field, with a focus on clinical diagnostic and therapeutic applications of state-of-the-art biomedical technologies. The Foundation, based at the San Gerardo Hospital, has two PET/CT tomographs, used for both clinical and research purposes, as well as radiochemistry laboratories for the development and production of radiotracers. In the context of PET activities, the University of Milano-Bicocca has a cyclotron for the production of radiotracers.
