At IGDR, we explore the living to create, improve and transmit fundamental knowledge and innovative tools at the heart of tomorrow’s health applications. Cancers, genetic and developmental diseases, antibiotic resistance, the challenges are numerous. Our teams carry out work at the forefront of fundamental and clinical research, in cell biology and molecular genetics, to observe and understand the functioning of living organisms, from the molecule to the organism. The IGDR is distinguished by the use of diversified and complementary study models and the multidisciplinarity of its experts in biology, biophysics, bioinformatics and biomedical, by combining research and training. We thus benefit from a real ability to stimulate exchanges between disciplines to develop new approaches. Our attractiveness is reinforced by our network of international partners and our location in a territory with a strong scientific and technological dynamic and where life is good.
