Materials, Molecule and Biological Engineering

Activities ranging from biomaterials, organic materials, polymers, condensed matter to construction materials in civil engineering.


ERRMECE  Extracellular Matrix-Cell Interactions Laboratory

Study the interrelations between cells and their various environments (natural: extracellular matrix, biofilm, microenvironment, materials … or artificial: surfaces, materials of synthesis, biomaterials …). Approaches made under molecular, supra-molecular or cellular perspectives. Include biochemists, cellular biologists, physiologists, microbiologists, physical chemists and federates these various skills at the level so fundamental as applied for application in the area of pathology, of elaboration of materials and innovative biomaterials, of industrial process or of conservation of the heritage.

GEC  Geosciences and Environment at Cergy

The GEC laboratory develops research in the field of Earth sciences, with expertise in tectonics-geodynamics and in petrophysics-geomechanics, and in the field of environment. Its specificity is an integrated, multi-scale approach of the deformation and alteration of rocks, from the field and the large scale analysis of geologic structures to the study of microstructures using modelling and laboratory measurements

L2MGC Laboratory of Mechanics and Civil Engineering Materials

Activities in the field of the civil engineering related to problems of the materials optimization and to the behavior of the structures and the structures. The used approaches conjugate at the same time experimental studies and works of modelling, going from the microstructural to the macrostructural scale and covering as well the physico-chemical aspects as the mechanics and the problems of couplings thermohydromecanics.

LAMBE  Laboratory Analysis and Modelling for Biology and Environment

Activities on the structure/reactivity of biomolecules, the interaction of the complex molecular assemblies, the reactivity in the interfaces in the environment and the polymer materials in the interfaces.

LERMA Laboratory for the study of Radiation and Matter in Astrophysics

The laboratory is organized in 4 Research Poles, complemented by 1 transverse structure dedicated to Technology and Research Support: Galaxies and Cosmology / Dynamics of the Interstellar Medium and Stellar Plasmas / Molecules in the Universe / Instrumentation Terahertz and Remote Sensing. The laboratory include around 100 permanent researchers and 40 Phd students.

LCB Laboratory of Biological Chemistry

The laboratory brings together researchers on the general theme of molecular diagnostics and biomolecules for life sciences, such as peptides, fluoropeptides, carbohydrates, fluorinated compounds… The specialty of the lab concerns the synthesis, the characterization and the biological evaluation of these biomolecules. The objective of the lab is also the development of new synthetic methods, especially environmentally friendly methodologies.

LPMS Laboratory of Physics of Materials and Surfaces

The laboratory has a long experience in spectroscopy of photoelectron, and in the field of the electronic structure, in the field of the magnetism. The LPMS develops close collaborations with the European synchrotrons (Elettra, SLS, SOLEIL, Max-lab).

LPPI Laboratory of Physico-Chemistry of Polymers and Interfaces

The laboratory gathering 19 researchers and around 20 PhD and post-doctorate students. The team is the result of collaboration between chemists (organic, inorganic, electrochemists), and experts in the physico-chemistry of polymers and of surfaces and interfaces. One of the most rewarding achievements of LPPI was to bring together the skills of the research team in Electronic conducting Polymer (ECP) and Interpenetrating Polymer Network (IPN) fields in the design of a new type of Electroactive Polymer Devices (EAPD).
