(QA) MEDICINE, RESEARCH & EXPERIMENTAL
We aim to understand mechanisms of cell communication in the skin and other body barriers. We focus our attention on exosomes, a nanoscale vesicles secreted by epithelial cells and are interested in the message which these convey to the immune system. We hope that our research will lead to better therapeutic approaches for patients.

1. Basic research of respiratory and cardiovascular systems and mechanisms of hypoxia- or hypercapnia-induced respiratory neuroplasticity (animal in vivo research).
Born from the complementarity between the field of health and the communication sciences, the LaTIM ("laboratoire de traitement de l’information médicale" for laboratory of medical information processing) develops a multidisciplinary research driven by members from University of Western Brittany, IMT Atlantique, INSERM and Brest CHRU (university hospitals).
