About the "Institut de Biologie de Lille"

In 1996, the “Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique” (CNRS), the French national organization for scientific research, with strong support of national and regional authorities, created the “Institut de Biologie de Lille” (IBL) located on campus of the Pasteur Institute of Lille. The IBL research centre was founded to reinforce basic biology science in the North / Pas-de-Calais region by, for example, welcoming group leaders and permitting them to develop highly competitive research. Research programs were initially conducted in the fields of human genetics, cellular biology, cancer, microbiology and Chemical Biology.

The lab is located in the Institute of Biology (5th floor).


Address : UMR CNRS 8161, 1 rue du Pr Calmette-59021 LILLE cedex-FRANCE
