European ＆ international partnerships
Friday July 12th, an agreement was signed to create an
‘International Associated Laboratory’ (laboratoire international
associé, or ‘LIA’) involving the French Institut de Biologie Structurale
in Grenoble (IBS – CNRS / CEA / UJF) and the Brazilian LNBio and CNPEM
Named "BACWALL", this LIA will study the assembly and structure of
macromolecular complexes that participate in the synthesis of the bacterial cell
wall and in virulence. The study of the mechanisms that form the bacterial cell
wall could allow significant advances in the understanding of bacterial
virulence, and thus the development of new antibiotherapies.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
