Laboratory of Biophotonics and Pharmacology (LBP) - UMR 7213

Key words

Cellular and molecular pharmacology – Pharmaceutical drugs – Cellular biology – Cellular physiology – Molecular biology – Biochemistry- Piophyrics – Cellular imaging – Fluorescence spectroscopie – Molecular interaction – Fluorophore synthesis


The laboratory aims to investigate molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in HIV-1 infection, cardio-vascular diseases and integrin-related signaling in tumors, and to offer new therapeutic solutions through a multidisciplinary approach (combining physics, chemistry, pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular and cell biology).

Research focus

The laboratory is organised in three research teams:

  •  Biophotonics of molecular and cellular interactions (Y. Mély)
  •  Tumoral signaling and therapeutic targets (M. Dontenwill)
  •  Experimental pharmacology and therapeutics (V. Schini-Kerth)
