"Lipids, Nutrition, Cancer" LNC

The INSERM Research Centre UMR866 ‘Lipids, Nutrition, Cancer - LNC’ was created the 1st of January 2007 and gathers several laboratories from the Université de Bourgogne, the INSERM, the EPHE et AgroSup.

The overall vocation of INSERM UMR866 is to promote fundamental and clinical research in the fields of cancer, nutrition, lipid biology, and cardiometabolic risk. Over the last years, and beyond common administration of UMR866, one main duty was to favour interactions between distinct subgroups in order :

  • to increase the cohesion
  • to set up and extend common facilities
  • to support translational research and joined programs involving several UMR866 teams as well as clinical departments of the University Hospital and the CGFL anti-cancer center,
  • to welcome new/additional groups coming from both the University of Burgundy and outside
  • to create a well-identified specificity at the interface of cancer biology and metabolic disease.

There are actually 8 teams and 2 associated teams inside UMR866

On January 1st 2007, INSERM Research Center included 9 distinct groups, involving 211 persons (researchers + teaching-researchers + technicians/engineers + postdocs + PhD students). Four teams were involved in cancer biology, one in cancer epidemiology, and four in lipids and nutrition. Teams were as follows:

The current configuration of the Research center UMR866-LNC gathers more than 200 researchers, teachers-researchers (including forty doctors), Engineers, Technicians, Post-Docs, PhD students and Students distributed in 8 teams:

In addition, our research center hosts 2 other teams susceptible to join in during the next years :
