Grenoble Alliance for Integrated Structural & Cell Biology
GRAL brings together 5 partner labs (BCI, BGE, CBM, IBS, and PCV) of the Interdisciplinary Research Institute of Grenoble (IRIG).
GRAL’s priorities are to decipher and integrate knowledge on the structure and dynamics of biological molecules and their function in the cellular context, in space and time.
This approach will allow to better understand the modulation of biological functions, and will open the way to major advances in health, environment, and biotechnologies.
GRAL (Grenoble Alliance for Integrated Structural Cell Biology) was selected for funding as a Laboratoire d’excellence (Labex) through the “Investissements d’avenir” programme of the French government in 2011. GRAL’s funding has been extented until 2028 through the Chemistry, Biology and Health Graduate School of Université Grenoble Alpes.
The project is at the interface between structural and cellular biology, and is multidisciplinary by nature. Its scientists, research staff; and students conduct forefront and innovative research in structural biology, cellular biology, integrative biology, plant biology, nanobiology, pathogenic-host interactions, cancer biology, molecular chemistry…
In the framework of the Grenoble Graduate School in Chemistry, Biology and Health" (CBH-EUR-GS), GRAL will fund up to 6 PhD projects (3-yr salary for a PhD student + funding for PhD operating costs) in the fields of integrated structural and cellular biology, to start...
Support for Scientific Events The GRAL programme support the organization of scientific days, seminars, workshops, etc, co-organized by researchers from the IRIG institute, with focus on Integrated Structural Cell Biology. Financial support from GRAL is dedicated to...
