Welcome to UMR 7622
The Developmental Biology laboratory (Laboratoire de Biologie du Développement, LBD), located in central Paris, is the modern descendant of a generation of embryology laboratories established in the 1950's at the University Pierre & Marie Curie.
LBD is affiliated with CNRS and the University Pierre & Marie Curie, and also is in partnership with Inserm (French medical research council). LBD hosts 16 independent research groups with complementary scientific projects, technical skills and model organisms, providing an overall scientific coherence and a synergistic research environment.
LBD encourages the integration of new independent research groups. Our research objective is to unravel the mechanisms regulating the early stages of animal development : meiotic divisions, stem cell origins, migration, determination and differentiation of embryonic cells, organization of embryonic axes and regionalization of the embryo, development of tissues and organs such as blood vessels, muscle and nervous system. Research at the LBD draws on a wide variety of animal models, including nematode, Drosophila, ascidian, zebrafish, amphibians, chicken, mice and a range of cultured cells.
This panel of model organisms allows technological complementary approaches as well as mechanistic comparisons. LBD groups practice a large range of experimental approaches : molecular and cell biology, cellular imaging, embryo microsurgery, genetics, proteomics, transcriptomics and computational modelling. LBD offers access to excellent internal technical facilities and common equipment.
It also benefits from easy access to state-of-the-art core services provided by the University, including imaging, microscopy, mass spectrometry, proteomics, FACS sorting and animal houses (http : //www.idf.inserm.fr/site/ifr_83/).
The faculty of the LBD ensures a strong interface between teaching and research by contributing to the University LMD (Licence-Master-Doctorat) teaching programs where developmental biology is a key element.
As a consequence, LBD teams host many Masters and graduate students. Belonging to one of the largest multi-disciplinary scientific universities of Europe, the LDB is ideally placed to facilitate interactions with mathematicians, physicists and chemists.
