62Contact information:

63The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology (CIRB) is a new Collège de France/CNRS/INSERM research structure located at the Collège de France in the center of Paris. This organ­ization hosts eighteen research teams from diffe­rent disciplines in order to foster new collaborations within the biological fields and across the usual disciplinary divide.The nine founding groups, specialized in the fields of infectious diseases, neurosciences, and cardio-vascular research, have been joined by nine new resident research teams, primarily junior­ ones, including chemists, physicists, and mathe­maticians, who share an interest in the biological sciences. The Center will benefit from its proxi­mity both to several other laboratories and to an extraordinary rich intellectual milieu that offers lectures on all aspects of knowledge. Outside the Collège de France, the CIRB has developed close ties with high profile neighbouring institutions, in particular the École normale supérieure and the Curie Institute.
