The LVTS is an attractive center:
- For Excellence in Research
- For Education
- For Industrial and clinical transfers
The LVTS UMRS1148 is organised to understand the physiological mechanisms by basic science approaches but also through large clinical trials, development of new diagnostic (markers and imaging) and new therapeutic/biomaterial strategies : identification of new targets, development of new molecules, validated by clinical trials.
The unit is organised into 6 collaborative teams affiliated to 3 different ITMO (National Institutes) PMN, Technologies for Health, Genetics, and to 2 Inserm scientific sections (CSS3 and CSS6).
More than 240 collaborators working together among which 119 have permanent positions.
- 15 full time researchers
- 77 university-hospital affiliated faculty
- 24 permanent technical assistants and 8 non-permanent technical assistants
- 36 PhD students
- 14 postdoctoral fellows
- 25 undergraduates
Our translational human and technological skills include clinical databases and assays, translational clinical investigations (carotid stenosis, aneurysms and dissections of the ascending aorta, Biocore), human tissue and cell biobanks, numerous experimental models of disease (transgenic mice, rats, rabbits), new methods in molecular and cell biology (proteomics, genetics & epigenetics, protein engineering, flow cytometry), chemistry of biopolymers, elaboration of biomaterials and nanosystems, and imaging technologies in small animals and in humans (Nuclear Imaging, Ultrasound and MRI).
Our Teams are hosted in 3 locations in the North of Paris:
- in the INSERM building at the Xavier Bichat Hospital (UFR de Médecine; Paris 7 University) with a dedicated 2000m2 research building
- at the UFR Santé Médecine et Biologie humaine (Bobigny; Paris 13 University)
- at the Institut Galilée (Villetaneuse, Paris 13 University)
