Nano and Micro Systems for Cell Biology

Life sciences is a major application field of nanosciences

Major biological processes are intimately related to mechanisms occurring at the molecular and cellular level. Understanding protein structures and functions in cells is important for cell biology. Understanding cells, their structure, their environment, their communication, their migration, their death, is crucial to appreciate differences between healthy and pathological cells.

By organising a series of workshops and seminars since November 2010, the Nanosciences Foundation has created compelling opportunities to gather many Grenoble-based researchers with these various - yet interdependent - specificities, and has given birth to a newly defined community.

biomaterials, biophysics, nano&microtech, biochemistry, macromolecular engineering, multicellular assembly


A multidisciplinary community

Knowledge sharing between the different labs

The wide know-how of experimental approaches and the cross fertilization of expertise

The effective training of master and PhD students for interdisciplinary research

From 2010, 10 international workshops with 700 participants in total

An internationally recognized scientific center

Grenoble : a large expertise in physics and chemistry for biology and in the development of functionalized micro- and nano-objects or surfaces.

A large number of scientists located on three major campuses in Grenoble : the Saint Martin d’Hères Campus, the Polygone Campus and the University Hospital Campus
