Clinical Geneticist, Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (Greece)

The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING), is an internationally recognised Centre of Excellence offering specialised services, translational research and postgraduate education in the fields of neurology, genetics, biomedical and medical sciences. This is probably the most successful model nowadays as it combines education, service and innovative research activities in one centre, providing major medical benefits to the people, society and the country. CING was one of the first, and today one of the best Institutes in Europe where postgraduate education, research and service have been successfully combined.

Our main aim is to improve continuously in order to lessen the suffering of patients and their families and prevent diseases through patient care, research and educational programs on neurological and genetic conditions such as muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chromosomal abnormalities and all other aspects of molecular biology and genetics such as thalassaemia, molecular virology, mental retardation, cardiovascular disease, stroke, cystic fibrosis and neurogenetics. Moreover, CING plays a key role in the fight against crime by providing specialized DNA services to the police authorities and expert court testimony for criminal and civil investigations.
