UMR754 IVPC "Viral Infections and Comparative Pathology"
The "Viral Infections and Comparative Pathology" lab is a joined research unit from INRA (Animal Health Division), Lyon 1 university and EPHE. Several collaborators from INSERM, veterinary school and the Lyon hospital are part of our unit, allowing us to develop fundamental research projects as well as projects based on the clinic. Located on the university campus of Gerland, an environment rich in academic and private partners in the field of human and animal health, especially infectiology (CIRI, IBCP, BioAster, Lyonbiopole, Sanofi, Boehringer-Merial ....) ; our research unit is one of the contributors of the "SFR Bioscience", a service unit that provides a shared pool of resources and technical core facilities (confined laboratories, animal facilities, imaging platform…). Our goals are to better prevent, detect and fight against endemic or emerging animal diseases.
