The ECOFECT LabEx - Eco-evolutionary dynamics of infectious diseases

ECOFECT is one of the 12 Laboratories of Excellence (LabEx) supported by the Université de Lyon Education and Research Cluster. 

ECOFECT gathers about 195 people including 150 researchers and teachers-researchers, from 10 scientific (University C. Bernard Lyon 1, ENS Lyon, CNRS, Inria, Insa), medical (Inserm, Institut Pasteur, Hospices Civils de Lyon, Fondation Mérieux), veterinary (VetAgro sup) and agronomic (Inra) institutions.
Ecofect main objective is to better understand infectious diseases as well as their role in organisms' evolution to better prevent and treat infections.

► How global changes transform human and animal diseases
► Towards integrated diagnostics and more suitable treatments
► Inter-disciplinary monitoring and research

ECOFECT builds a new expertise, based on complementarity of different communities of excellence in Lyon: on the one hand virologists, bacteriologists, immunologists and clinicians, on the other hand ecologists and evolutionists.
