GIGA-Cancer researchers are studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in cancer and metastatic dissemination. The goal of the unit is to develop more effective, more appropriate and more personal treatments.
The GIGA-Cardiovascular unit is a multi-disciplinary team comprising expert health care professionals from the University Hospital and scientists who try to foster cardiovascular innovation for the benefit of the patient.
The unit aims to understand the neural correlates of human conscious awareness.
Researches at GIGA–CRC range from radiopharmaceutical production to in vivo imaging with TEP and also with IRM and electrophysiology.
GIGA-I3 brings together laboratories that study different but complementary aspects of immunity (mainly inflammation, hematology, virology and immunoendocrinology).
GIGA - In Silico Medicine consists of an interdisciplinary team who develop research activities along: modeling of the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary systems, tissue engineering, neuroimaging and model-based therapeutics.
The core expertise of the unit is the forward and reverse genetic dissection of complex inherited traits in mammals (mainly for inflammatory bowel diseases, cancer and animal genomics).
With the ultimate goal of translating molecular advances into novel therapeutic opportunities the unit brings together laboratories with complementary expertise that collaboratively focus on various themes.
Research at GIGA-Neurosciences focuses on the cellular and molecular underpinnings of the development and function (or dysfunction) of the central and peripheral nervous system.
