The strategic axis ALIVE aims at structuring and promoting within the laboratory a highly interdisciplinary approach with the living and environmental sciences. This orientation brings together five research themes of the lab (MNBT, NII, DISCO, ROB and HOPES). The development of systems and devices at microscale and nanoscale to interface with the molecules, cells and tissues of living organisms is at the heart of the research activities.
The goals of ALIVE are cognitive, as to advance the life sciences by developing technologies from engineering, but also medical or industrial applications. Thus, links between the laboratory and the new campus of Oncopôle have been set.
