New atlas of Southern Ocean marine life

Two researchers of university of burguny, Bruno David (also editor) and Thomas Saucède, are two contributors to this collective book : Biogeographic atlas of the southern ocean. Biogeographic information is of fundamental importance for discovering marine biodiversity hotspots, detecting and understanding impacts of environmental changes, predicting future distributions, monitoring biodiversity, or supporting conservation and sustainable […]

Description of scientific achievement of the LipSTIC LabEx

As major public health concerns, cancer and inflammatory diseases are pathologies with urgent medical requirements. A novel concept has recently emerged and relies on the ability of lipoproteins to distribute essential bioactive compounds and drugs throughout the body, and to neutralize and eliminate bacterial proinflammatory mediators. The LipSTIC LabEx is a multidisciplinary research program forming […]

Biom’@x : towards a technological translational medicine

Partners : FEMTO-ST, CHRU (CIC1431), EFS Bourgogne Franche-Comté… Biom’@xSciences and technologies is a pluri-science research axis aiming at developing smart devices able to understand (as fully as possible) a living system under study. This understanding should lead to the determination of behavior laws that, through prognostic approaches, allows anticipating the evolution of these systems with […]
