SFR Biosciences is a departmental unit (UMS3444/US8) which brings together, in 4 different divisions, a set of technical platforms for the benefit of the scientific community.

The 4 divisions are:

  • Animal Science
  • From the cell to the body
  • Protein Science
  • Cellular and Genetic Technologies

Equipment for these platforms can be found on the different sites of ENS de Lyon:

  • Experimental Biology on Mice (PBES)
  • Imaging Techniques Platform/Microscopy (PLATIM)
  • Experimental Screening Research In vivo Platform (PRECI)
  • Technical heritage platform
  • Genetic Analysis and Vectorology Platform (AGV)

SFR Biosciences technical platforms participate in approved projects at a national level. The objective of SFR Biosciences is to promote a scientific and technological site policy for the biology research units located on the Charles Mérieux campus.

This Federative Structure currently includes 8 contributing units working in different fields of research covering the major fields of biology:

  • Infectiology
  • Cellular Biology
  • Plant Biology
  • Biochemistry of proteins
  • Bio-informatics
  • Structural Biology
  • Molecular evolution
  • Genomics of organisms
  • Immunology
  • Microbiology

The SFR Biosciences works by pooling resources providing technical platforms for the researchers of the site, and for the community of academic or industrial researchers in France.
