Presentation

The Laboratory of ’Chemical and Biological Technologies for Health’ (UTCBS) CNRS UMR8258 - Inserm U1022 is a mixed research unit with:

- The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS),
- The National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM)
- The University Paris Descartes
- And the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris (ENSCP Chimie ParisTech.).

Director: Daniel SCHERMAN, Research Director of cl. ex. CNRS

Activity of the unit.

The Unit develops innovative approaches in biology and medicine in the areas of the fight against cancer and genetic diseases. His approach is based on the conventional treatments and genetic cellular dysfunctions observed in these pathologies.
With its multidisciplinary structure, the unit works on all steps necessary to develop new treatments. His research focuses therefore on the design and synthesis of active molecules and drug carriers and DNA, their formulation and study of their physicochemical properties, their administration by conventional methods and techniques electrotransfer, the evaluation of their efficacy in vitro and in vivo and their biodistribution and biochemical changes and interaction with the selected targets.
In addition the unit is heavily involved in the electrochemical detection of biological analytes such as nitrogen monoxide and diseases by various imaging techniques and the design of micro analytical systems and coupling of electrokinetic separations methods and techniques of detection.

The unit is housed on two sites: the Faculty of Pharmaceutical and Biological Sciences, which depends on the Paris Descartes University and the ENSCP - Chimie ParisTech.
