The I2BC results from the convergence of the CNRS, CEA and the Université Paris Sud to become a international visibility center.
The Institute of Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC) is a mixed research unit UMR (CEA, CNRS, Université Paris Sud).
The unit consists of nearly 80 research teams, 15 technology platforms, from 8 research units (CGM IBBMC, IBITECS, IGM, ISV, LEGS, LVMS, ...)
The institute is spread over three research sites (UPSud in Orsay, CNRS in Gif-sur-Yvette and Campus CEA Saclay) in 14 buildings scheduled to rally in 2018 on the CNRS Gif campus.
The Institute of Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC) will be composed of eight founding units and will be launched in 2015 on the campus of Gif-Sur-Yvette. Work will focus on the molecular and cellular characterization of the major functions of the living and the alterations of these functions in diseases.
This institute affiliated with the CNRS, CEA and the Université Paris-Sud will oganisé in five scientific departments:
- Biochemistry, Biophysics and BiologieStructurale,
- Cell Biology
- Genome Biology,
- Microbiology and
The I2BC ensures that its research teams have access to advanced technologies, organizing and supporting the operation of its technology platforms.
