A National Research Infrastructure for Biological Imaging

Île de France Sud

Head of Node: Nadine Peyriéras

IdFsud gathers an important task force in biology, physics, applied mathematics and complex systems modelling. These disciplines synergize to develop innovative methodologies and tools in microscopy imaging and image analysis for applications in developmental biology, cell biology, plant biology, physiopathology and neurosciences. IdF Sud gathers three core partners with internationally acknowledged expertise: BioEmergences (CNRS-IBiSA), Imagerie-Gif and Polytechnique LOB (Lab for optics & biosciences, CNRS – INSERM).
The imaging facilities of IdFsud are developed and coordinated by: Nadine Peyrieras (INAF, CNRS, Gif-sur-Yvette), Béatrice Satiat-Jeunemaitre (ISV, CNRS, Gif sur Yvette), Emmanuel Beaurepaire (Ecole Polytechnique, CNRS, Palaiseau).
The activity of the Ile-de-France Sud node (IdFsud) consists in developing novel optical biological imaging methods, in giving access to a broad range of imaging approaches to a large community, and in providing adequate training in light microscopy and CLEM.
