Welcome to IEOS

The mission of IEOS is to improve our knowledge in the fields of Endocrinology (Endocrine disruptors in endocrine and metabolic diseases; Genomics and epigenomics of diabetes; Interactions between the energetic/nutritional state and the immune system) and Oncology (Molecular mechanisms regulating the differentiation and transformation of the cells). Our aim is to favor strong synergies among the different themes to create opportunities for translational biomedical research.
