Welcome to the ITG

 The Institute of Toxicology and Genetics (ITG) is a trans-disciplinary institute where biologists, chemists and physicists together aim to elucidate molecular and cellular interactions at functional interfaces. This knowledge guides the rational design and engineering of novel sophisticated tools for controlling the behaviour of cells in vivo and in vitro.
Our major topics are:

  • Cellular signalling Profile
  • Cell differentiation and proliferation 
  • Embryonic development in fish
  • Pathophysiology of diseases
