Laboratory of Bioimaging and Pathologies - LBP

The main objective of our laboratory is through a multidisciplinary approach (combining physics, chemistry, pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular and cell biology) at the different scales of life (from the molecule to the animal) to investigate molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in HIV-1 infection, cardio-vascular diseases and integrin-related signaling in tumors, and to propose new therapeutic clues.


Our laboratory is composed of 56 scientists and technicians, and more than 60 students in three research teams:

- Biophotonics of molecular and cellular interactions (Y. Mély)

- Tumoral signaling and therapeutic targets (M. Dontenwill)

- Physiopathology of metabolic diseases (P. Boucher)

- Nanochemistry and bioimaging (A. Klymchenko)
