Expertise and research topics

  • Research and Development of Biomarkers and Medicines :

    This multidisciplinary research area aims to identify biomarkers of pathology and toxicity, develop tracers for diagnostic and monitoring purposes, and design medicines for curative treatments. Genomics, proteomics, metabonomics, microscopy and preclinical molecular imaging fully match the specific skills of our partner laboratories specialising in chemical synthesis, biological physics, pharmacochemistry and the extraction and analysis of natural molecules to elaborate innovative tracers and medicines.

  • Mind and Health :

    This theme focuses on bilateral relations between the human brain/mind and health. It analyses the impact of changes in health on psychism and cognition, and examines the consequences that events and processes have on mental health. This theme encourages cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations in all matters concerning all forms of intervention with individuals, families, groups, communities, institutions, etc. who are faced with physical and mental health problems.

  • Management:

    This theme involves designing, developing and testing new scientific methods dedicated to solving the issues surrounding public health funding. It also focuses on examining the effectiveness of financial management within health care institutions along with improving organisation and logistics.

  • Integrative Biomedicine :

    The basic idea of integrative biomedicine is to unite the expertise of research teams in the field of physiology and related sciences (such as neuroscience, neuropsychology, molecular biology, histology, biophysics and toxicology) in order to have a better understanding of the exchange between tissues and organs and how this orchestrates the general functioning of an organism in pathological and non-pathological contexts.

  • Motor Skills:

    Being familiar with human movement gives the ability to use it to transform motor behaviours and learn techniques to optimise or restore the human motor potential at different periods of life.
