Gellight is a multidisciplinary project joining together 4 academic teams working in collaboration with a French SME.
Expertises span from organic synthesis, photochemistry, physics to biology.

IMRCP (Molecular Interactions and Chemical and Photochemical reactivities) laboratory is a mixed CNRS – Toulouse University research unit, specialized on soft matter. The IDeAS team (Dynamical Interfaces and Stimuli-responsive assemblies) working on Gellight project focuses on the design and characterization of smart materials based on self-assembled or nanostructured systems.
3D imaging R&D: Expertise in microscopy, multidimensional live imaging, image processing and analysis. Role in the project, specifications, cytotoxicity, microscopy tests, mechanical properties by AFM.
“Molecular and clinical determinants of the cardiac architecture”. The global research program of the I2MC team relies on understanding the relationship between the architecture of the cardiac tissue (more specifically of the cardiac contractile cells, i.e, the cardiomyocytes-CM) and the function and pharmacology of the heart.
Institut des Molécules et Matériaux du Mans (IMMM) is mixed CNRS / Le Mans University research unit divided in four research axes: organic synthesis, inorganic materials, physics of confined matter and chemistry/physical chemistry of polymers.
