The Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics (CING) is a private, non-profit, bi-communal, medical, research and academic center.
CING is dedicated to lessening the suffering of patients and their families and preventing 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.
CING is a medical and biomedical translation center, which is probably the most successful model nowadays as it combines education, service and research activities in one center, providing major medical benefits to the people, society and the country. CING was one of the first, and today one of the best, examples in Europe where postgraduate education, research and service have been successfully combined.
CING receives international recognition and plays an active and essential role as a national, regional and international center of excellence for the provision of high quality services, innovative research and postgraduate education.
Information on CING is available mainly in English and partially in Greek.
