Research themes of the Institute

Research Teams of the Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences jointly carry out research based around three axes :

This research is fundamental, technological, methodological or applied, which gives the institute a very complete positioning, from research to industry, to respond to societal issues related to health, energy and bio-defense.

The Institut expertise covers a broad spectrum of skills, ranging from biology to mathematics and computing to medicine, physics and chemistry. This multidisciplinarity enables us to study living things in all their complexity, from molecular instruments to the whole organism.

For that reason, Research Teams of the Institute have high-profile platforms and infrastructures at their disposal, certified IBiSA or integred in Infrastructures Nationales en Biologie et Santé (INBS) fund by the Programme Investissements d'Avenir (PIA) : France Life Imaging (Biomedical Imagery), FRISBI (Integrative Structural Biology), MétaboHUB (Metabolomics) et NeurATRIS (Translational Neuroscience Research).


Organisation

The Institute includes three Departments :
