AOUI-VR Molecular Pathology Section

The Molecular Pathology Section was founded as the Cystic Fibrosis Laboratory, attached to the AOUI-Verona Cystic Fibrosis Center, at the turn of the decade between the 1980s and 1990s.

In 2007, the CF Laboratory became an integral part of the AOUI-Verona Analysis Laboratory (Borgo Trento site), where it is now known as the Molecular Pathology Section.
