Université de Lille

Research groups affiliated to EURON:

  • Faculty of Sciences and Technologies (FST)
    Faculty of Sciences and Technologies provides 55 mentions of diplomas ranging from bachelor's to doctoral degrees (20,000 students) in the following fields: biology, chemistry, electronics, electrical engineering, automation, computer science, mathematics, mechanics, physics, earth sciences. FST integrates 29 research laboratories including some INSERM and CNRS units working on basic mechanisms associated to the field of Neurosciences (Cancer, Glycobiology, Neuroinflammation, Neuromuscular disorders, Cell Physiology, Perinatal Environment and brain development) and provides technological platforms in Bioinformatics, Bioanalysis, Biomolecular Interaction Analysis, Proteomics and BioImaging.
  • Faculty of Medicine (FM)
    Faculty of Medicine is the largest medical training and research center in France, all disciplines combined with more than 12,000 students. FM is embedded into the CHRU of Lille, among the three best university hospital centers in France, offering its students the opportunity to practice cutting-edge clinical medicine and access the latest advances in biomedical research. FM also integrates about 30 research teams among which INSERM and CNRS labs in Neuroscience Center and Pasteur Institute work on Neuroinflammation, Neurological and mental illnesses and Neurochemistry in close contact with patients.
