BRIT is a research laboratory that focuses on biotechnology and nanotechnology for the care, treatment and prevention of chronic diseases. The realization of the four "Biological towers", home to this center, is one of the most important scientific investments that the University of Catania has achieved in recent years, through which research groups from different sectors can work together to create a network of excellence.
