Résumé

The Institute of functional genomics (IGF) is a joint research unit between the CNRS, the INSERM and Montpellier 1 and 2 universities created in 2005 and located on the Arnaud de Villeneuve campus near Montpellier. Its director Joël Bockaert describes the various activities of the IGF where both fundamental research and applied research is carried out genomics, an increasingly complex discipline. In particular, the objective of this organisation divided into five departments is to work on the mechanisms of communication at the cellular level. The target areas are neurobiology, oncology, endocrinology and physiology, associated with molecular pharmacology as a cross-disciplinary interest.
