The Laboratory of Molecular Medicine and Genomics (LMMGe) created within a collaborative project between the University of Salerno, the Second University of Naples, the University of Naples "Federico II' and Regione Campania, is located in the Baronissi campus of the University of Salerno.  Its research and training activities are integrated with those of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Salerno and are mainly focused in biomedicine and biotecnologies applied to medicine.

The laboratory, fully equipped for structural and functional studies of genomes, includes next generation sequencing and microarray facilities, informatics and bioinformatics services, a confocal microscopy laboratory and a cell engineering facility and will have soon access to a cell culture room for the use of viral vectors for gene transfer and gene therapy studies and a small animal facility for 'in vivo' experimentations. The laboratories host a rich and recent array of instrumentations for massively parallel sequencing, bead- and veracode-array analyses, molecular and cellular biology and cell morphology investigations. Expert molecular biologists and bioinformaticians handle all aspects of experiment design, biotechnological implementation and data analysis and storage.The laboratory participates to national and European scientific projects focusing in basic and translational biomedicine and in advanced training of medical and PhD students and of young scientists in medicine, biotechnology and bioinformatics, including the VI FP Integrated Project 'CRESCENDO - Consortium for Research into Nuclear Receptors in Development and Aging' and the European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research COST Action 'SEQAHEAD - Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis Network'. It is supported by grants from national and international funding agencies and foundations.
