The Giannina Gaslini Istitute is a National Public Children’s Hospital and Research Institute located in Genoa, Italy. It was founded in 1938 by an act of love and solidarity of Senator Gerolamo Gaslini. In 1956 the Istitute Gaslini was recognized as national public children’s hospital and research institute. Its activities include health care, research, teaching, and constant education of the hospital staff. Research is a strategic objective of the Istitute and is mainly aimed to translating research results into the clinical practice. The Istitute Gaslini is a multidisciplinary, highly specialized reference centre with national and international catchment area. It is the only hospital in Italy providing specialist and sub-specialist care, both medical and surgical, for mothers and children. Therefore, it is a national referral centre for complex diseases affecting newborns, children, and adolescents requiring highly specialised treatment.
In 2007/2008 the Gaslini Istitute obtained the desired accreditation recognition of the Joint Commission International whose standards aim to the continuous improvement of assistance always supported by qualified and excellent research.
In 2019, the agreement between the Giannina Gaslini Istitute and the Italian Istitute of Technology (IIT) found its operational conclusion, in particular referring to the Joint Lab of Genomics aspects, which presents aspects of both high quality research and of highly specialized complex diagnostics.
