Located in Milan, Italy, the San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy (SR-Tiget) was created in 1995 as a joint venture between the Telethon Foundation and Ospedale San Raffaele (OSR) with the mission to perform cutting-edge research in gene and cell therapy and to translate its results into therapeutic advances, focusing on genetic diseases. SR-Tiget is fully integrated within OSR and has dedicated infrastructures to support high-quality preclinical studies and proof-of-concept clinical trials.


A postdoctoral research fellow position is now available in the laboratory of Dr. A. Mortellaro & Prof. A. Aiuti. We are looking for a highly motivated individual to study the immunological and molecular basis of a newly discovered autoinflammatory syndrome and implement gene therapy and editing approaches as promising strategies to treat the affected patients. Collectively, these studies will contribute to advance our knowledge of autoinflammatory disorders and improve patients’ care.
