In general, the aim of the research carried out at the IBCP is the study of proteins in their biological context. Approaches used include integrative cellular (cell culture, various types of microscopies) and molecular techniques, both experimental (including biocrystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance) and theoretical (structural bioinformatics).
Research at the IBCP is organised into three main areas, bringing together 13 groups working on topics such as cancer, extracellular matrix, tissue engineering, membranes, cell transport and signalling, bioinformatics and structural biology. Altogether, it includes about 150 people (researchers, university academic staff, technicians, administrative staff), representing 9 nationalities, of which half have tenured positions.
The IBCP houses the Lyon-Gerland site of the Rhone-Alpes Bioinformatics Centre (PRABI).IBCP ...
