The Cell & Plant Physiology Laboratory studies the dynamics of the plant cell. This research, conducted at both the molecular and cellular, is then placed in the context of the whole plant during its development and subjected to changing conditions of the environment. They aimed at a better understanding of cellular mechanisms, e.g. metabolic pathways or processes of cell division and morphogenesis.

Université Grenoble Alpes submits its application to the IDEX Project

The ambition shared by the partners of the project – the universities Joseph Fourier, Pierre Mendès France and Stendhal; the grandes écoles Grenoble INP, Sciences Po Grenoble and ENSAG; the national research organisms CNRS, CEA, Inserm, Inria, Irstea; and the university hospital CHU Grenoble – is focused on creating a single world-class university: the future new University Grenoble Alpes. This new model of university will reinforce our capacity to attract leading scholars and students, develop ground-breaking research and competitive curricula. UGA will be a fully integrated institution. [more]
