Our research teams

Céline Giustranti
Over 85 research teams distributed in four areas work every day to decipher cell actions and disruptions. Biologists, chemists and physicists discuss and collaborate in their efforts to push the boundaries of knowledge.

Cultivating the Curie spirit

Researchers are the lifeblood of scientific progress, and thus embody the very culture of Institut Curie. They are organized into multidisciplinary teams, in four research fields each with three research units associated with the CNRS, Inserm and the universities, plus a translational research department.

Institut Curie has long been an advocate of balancing the top experts in each discipline and attracting researchers of international repute to actively promote and develop new talent at all levels. Institut Curie has also introduced a recruitment and support policy for the best young researchers in order to achieve positive momentum and promote renewal within the organization, with a fair balance between junior and senior employees in all units.

After developing their project for six years, the junior groups may be promoted or mentored to continue their research outside the organization, in order to spread and disseminate the Curie know-how and culture, all the while maintaining collaborations.
