We isolate and characterize plant bioactive molecules and evaluate their potential use in nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. Furthermore, we assess the role of secondary plant metabolites as potential indicators for detecting environmental changes using plants as biosensors. We isolate, clone and characterize plant genes too by studying their expression and function. the lab is equipped with instrumentation able to evaluate and quantify the presence of recombinant genes in genetically modified foods and for the differential expression of genes using microarray gene scanning.


The prices are intended all VAT excluded. A 25% discount will be applied for requests from departments of the University of Turin and a 50% discount for requests from the same Department.

THE THIRD MISSION

The so-called third mission of universities includes all the activities with which universities enter into direct interaction with society, providing a contribution as well as traditional teaching and research missions. This includes research and consulting for third parties (both companies and private), the management of patents and technology transfer activities, the creation of companies, the management of intermediation and support structures, etc.

Processing under contract (third party activities or jobs under contract) consist of research, consultancy, laboratory services, continuing education courses commissioned by third parties that compensate them.

The transfer of technologies and skills is an important tool to enhance and spread the objectives and results of scientific research in Italy, fundamental for the cultural and industrial development of our country to which the University of Turin makes its important contribution in the various forms of intervention. The exploitation of research results in its various forms therefore presents itself as an opportunity to find new financial resources, through mechanisms ranging from patents and other legal instruments for protecting intellectual property, to the creation of spin-offs, to research collaborations with companies.

LA TERZA MISSIONE

Rientrano nella cosiddetta terza missione degli atenei l’insieme delle attività con le quali le università entrano in interazione diretta con la società, fornendo un contributo che accompagna le missioni tradizionali di insegnamento e di ricerca. Rientrano in quest’ambito la ricerca e le consulenze conto terzi, la gestione dei brevetti e le attività di trasferimento tecnologico, la creazione di imprese, la gestione di strutture di intermediazione e di supporto, etc.

Le attività conto terzi sono costituite da ricerche, consulenze, prestazioni di laboratorio, corsi di formazione continua commissionate da terzi che le compensano.

Il trasferimento di tecnologie e competenze rappresenta un importante strumento per valorizzare e diffondere gli obiettivi e i risultati della ricerca scientifica in Italia, fondamentale per lo sviluppo culturale e industriale del nostro paese al quale l’ateneo di Torino dà il suo importante contributo nelle diverse forme di intervento. Lo sfruttamento dei risultati delle ricerche nelle sue diverse forme si pone quindi come opportunità per reperire nuove risorse finanziarie, attraverso meccanismi che vanno dai brevetti e dagli altri strumenti legali di protezione della proprietà intellettuale, alla creazione di spin-off, alle collaborazioni di ricerca con imprese.
