The Laboratory of Tissue Biology and Therapeutic Engineering (LBTI) is one of the two joined units CNRS-Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 housed at the Institute of Biology and Chemistry of Proteins Lyon (IBCP).
The joint research unit UMR 5305, created in January 2013, is composed of over a hundred persons, 50% with permanent positions and 50% students, post-docs and technical temporary positions. The specificity of our structure is its multidisciplinary approach linked to a strong translational activity towards clinical applications of our work. Chemists, biochemists, cell and molecular biologists, physiologists and physicians are therefore associated to cover areas of expertise that span from cell and tissue biology of skin and cartilage to the identification of therapeutic targets and tissue vectorization.
Our goal is to study a biological tissue in its functional integrity and to develop new therapeutic engineering concepts.
Our aim is threefold :
Our research areas, developed by five research teams are regrouped under three main themes :
Our motto is “explore to understand and act, in knowledge and in therapeutic innovation in biology
