BCBS team gathers teacher-researchers belonging to different disciplines: biochemistry, molecular biology, enzymatic engineering, microbial biochemistry and organic chemistry. The team activity, which is embedded in a biology-chemistry interface, relates to biotechnological and chemical exploitation of natural resources (marine and agricultural) in order to obtain and create products and services ensuring preservation and well-being of health populations. The team applies its research in pharmaceutical, therapeutic, health-nutrition, dermo-cosmetic’s fields, and collaborates closely with industrial partners from the field of new ingredients or supplements for food and human health. Resolutely turned towards innovation and technology transfer, the team also aligns its development in interaction with the socioeconomic sphere, firstly by highlighting its academic research activities next to it, then by answering to exogenous requests. That is why the team is particularly associated with the biotechnology chair entitled Bioaqtiv’, that proposes several specialized technological services for companies in the area of health biotechnologies and agrifood.
