Developmental Biology Institute of Marseille, Aix-Marseille University

The INFORM program (INformation Flow and ORganization at the Membrane) sets up an interdisciplinary consortium in the Luminy campus of Aix Marseille University, gathering 12 laboratories in Biology, Mathematics and Physics. The objective is to quantitatively understand the biochemical and mechanical basis of cell signaling, both in normal and disease conditions. The project will allow scientific progress in understanding the dynamics of signaling focusing on a quantitative analysis of biological mechanisms.
For this purpose we aim at:
  • Developping innovative combinations of imaging techniques
  • Developing new tools to monitor signaling in living cells/tissues
  • Linking these models with physiological functions with a particular emphasis on developmental and immune systems
  • Building quantitative models of signaling process that encapsulate biochemistry and mechanics
We seek to build an interdisciplinary research community through a combination of:
  • Collaborative research projects
  • Innovative training
  • International networking through workshops and seminars.
