Scientific research is the cornerstone of IGEA’s corporate culture. Every choice we make during the process of developing a therapy is guided by the results of our research. Whether the idea for a new product originates from a patient’s need or from the curiosity of one of our researchers, we make that idea a reality, scientifically demonstrating its effectiveness.
It is not possible to talk about the value of IGEA without highlighting its achievements in scientific research in over 40 years.
