GRAL

Grenoble Alliance for Integrated Structural & Cell Biology

GRAL brings together 4 partner labs (BS, CBM, IBS, and PCV).

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.

About us

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 extended 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…
