This call is open to projects which fit with at least one key question/CDI and can be conducted in a current MAbImprove’s team.

The LabEx now gathers 27 research teams and more than 200 researchers. It is based on the complementarity of both sites, as well as on a national network of academic teams, and several pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies directly interested in the fallouts from the project.
