The Centre of Immunology of Marseille-Luminy (CIML) is a joint research unit of the CNRS, INSERM and Aix-Marseille University, internationally recognised in its field. The CIML is composed of approximately 200 people of all nationalities working in 16 research teams exploring the various fields of immunity. Located in the Luminy Science and Technology Park in Marseille (France), it has state-of-the-art technological platforms (flow cytometry, microscopy, genomics). The recruited person will join the research team "Immunology and biology of host/pathogen interactions" led by Jean-Pierre GORVEL at the CIML and will work under the supervision of Jean-Pierre GORVEL, Hugues LELOUARD and Stéphane MERESSE within the group dedicated to the research project "Intracellular Chips Against Resistant microOrganisms (ICARO)" funded by the European Innovation Council (EIC).
Constraints and risks
The ICARO project is part of the EIC Pathfinder programme which is one of the tools of the European Innovation Council (EIC). A major new feature of the European Union's Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2021-2027, the EIC aims to make Europe a leader in innovation by "bridging the gap between the laboratory and entrepreneurship. The ICARO (Intracellular carrier against resistant microorganisms) project has 4 partners: 2 Spanish laboratories from CSIC, a startup coordinator A4Cell, a Belgian laboratory and CIML with Jean-Pierre GORVEL and Hugues Lelouard, CNRS researchers, as partners.
