In accordance with S.I.S.Me.R.’s value system, excellence in the clinical sector necessarily entails ongoing commitment to scientific research. This objective is also pursued through specific cultural and operative programmes involving the development of scientific research projects and publication of the results achieved in specialised national and international journals.

At any one time, a number of different clinical and scientific research projects are always ongoing at S.I.S.Me.R., in order to identify and develop new techniques and find solutions to specific critical needs in the Reproductive Medicine and Biology field. These projects are performed either independently or through partnerships with public and private institutions on both a national and international level.

SISMeR’s research work provides it with a significant data pool that it uses as the basis for a number of scientific publications with which to disseminate the results achieved.

Scientific research

SISMeR believes in scientific research, a commitment to which it contributes day after day by conducting important projects, often in partnership with scientific associations or institutions and universities in Italy and abroad.
SISMeR’s doctors and biologists are, or have been, members of the most prestigious national and international scientific associations in the Reproductive Medicine and Biology and genetics fields, including:


S.I.S.Me.R. has contributed to more than 500 scientific publications.

Teaching activities

SISMeR aims to be a reference point for the world of reproductive medicine, for both those who are no stranger to the field and those approaching it for the first time. SISMeR’s vocation for scientific research and its commitment to pass on its know-how are translated into the daily mission of its Staff, the organisation of training courses, and agreements with a number of university centres for the teaching of reproductive pathophysiology.

SISMeR firmly believes in the potential of the new generations. For this reason it offers students the chance to participate in internships for experimental theses and to enter the world of work through practical training associated with their studies.
