The LBN (laboratory for Bioengineering and Nanoscience) was created in 2007. LBN is known to combine specific inorganic scaffolds (porous silicon…) and innovative microscopy methods as Confocal Raman or multiphotonic microscopy for tissue engineering based on human dental pulp stem cells (DPSC) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS).
LBN is located at the heart of the Faculty of Odontology of Montpellier and directed by Professor Frédéric CUISINIER. The LBN is part of the scientific department Health Biology (DBS).
LBN is ISO9001 accredited for the public research process and the EDMOS platform is under certification for private research process.
Since 2021, the LBN hosts 3 interdisciplinary research groups and a technological platform.
The EDMOS platform is a collaborative platform combining technical facilities from LBN, Institut Mines Telecom Ales and CHU Montpellier.
The researchers belong to the Dental Faculty, the Pharmacy Faculty, and the chemistry department of the Science Faculty.
