About the employer

Created in January 2011, the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center(CRNL) integrates the multidisciplinary expertise of 380 members (14 teams) for a synergistic approach of brain organization, cognitive functions and mental states, and of related brain disorders.

The neural substrates of brain functions, such as perception and action, attention, memory and learning, sleep and vigilance, emotion and social cognition, are investigated along two entwined strategic directions: from genes and cells to behavior and cognition, and from bench to patient.

Aiming at a comprehensive understanding of these complex brain functions, a multiscale integrated approach is pursued in animal models and humans. Tackling brain dysfunction means deciphering the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms from the molecular/cellular level up to neural network organization and behavior, and translating this knowledge to new diagnostic markers and to innovative therapies.

The Lyon Neurocampus Project, funded by the State-Regional Program Contract (~20 M€), aims at gathering in a new building at the Vinatier Hospital all the teams and technical platforms of the CRNL located today in various campuses of the University Lyon 1. It will also offer spaces for hosting new teams and new activities for the CRNL.  

Lyon Metropole is responsible for the coordination of the project which represents 6000 m2 of offices and labs, delivered at the end of 2018, fully dedicated to the research on the brain and its pathologies.
