From whole animals to physics and mathematics

Research within our Department focuses on the study of biological membranes and their interactions with foreign microorganisms, with a strong emphasis on infectious processes, including infections by parasites, bacteria and viruses, as well as the establishment of immune responses.

The LPHI is part of the BioSanté Rabelais cluster, the ORPHEME competitivity cluster, and the Infectiopôle Sud Foundation. It also represents the University of Montpellier (UM) in the EUROBIOMED competitivity cluster.
