Istituto Superiore di Sanità (NIH), Italy

The Istituto Superiore di Sanità (National Institute of Health), also ISS, is an Italian public institution that, as the leading technical-scientific body of the Italian National Health Service (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale), performs research, trial, control [disambiguation needed], counseling, documentation and training for public health.

Trace the history of a research institution, which was founded in 1934 with 40 staff (today there are about 2,000) through the images, it is certainly more interesting and less boring than reading pages and texts that are likely to be self-congratulatory. Among the many interesting points that trace the milestones of research at the Institute, the construction of the first electron microscope Italian, the campaign to defeat malaria in the Pontine plain, Nobel laureates Chain and Bovet at work in their laboratories, the “factory” for the realization of penicillin, the collection of historical instruments.
