The LISM teams develop multi-scale research combining various approaches of biology, biochemistry, biophysics, and structural biology to understand biological mechanisms from the molecular to the cellular level.

The LISM is particularly involved in the development of Cryo-electron microscopy, a rapidly growing technique for the study of proteins and complexes.

Finally, most of LISM’s themes are at the frontier of fundamental knowledge and its transfer to health applications.

LISM is internationally recognized for its membrane studies, thanks to multiple collaborations in France and abroad, and to the numerous conferences given at major international congresses.
