The « idée research » department provides about 500 m2 of laboratory and office space to academic research teams of the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (CRNL). These teams can, within the framework of collaborative projects, accommodate in the short or medium term collaborative research projects carried out by external teams as long as these projects are dedicated to translational research in epilepsy.
At present, two CRNL research teams and one CRNL technology platform for molecular biology research are present at “idée”. The TIGER (Translational and Integrative Group in Epilepsy Research) team is co-headed by Dr. Laurent Bezin and Dr. Sylvain Rheims. The GenDev (Genetics of Development) team is led by Pr. Patrick Edery.
