The CRBM has acquired its credentials in particular through the “cell cycle” theme, which has made the laboratory internationally renowned thanks to the discovery of the molecular mechanisms that control cell division with the work initiated by Marcel Dorée and his team.
This theme is still extremely active at the CRBM, and the research projects developed aim at understanding the molecular mechanisms governing mitosis, under normal conditions or during tumorigenesis.

The CRBM, this is also
