Two major public health challenges

The Trec team focuses on two major public health challenges, using integrated approaches.

Our research combines :

  • Fundamental studies to understand the mechanisms of gene expression, especially during the cell transformation. The comprehension of these mechanisms is crucial to finding new prognostic and therapeutic targets involved in cancer progression.
  • Preclinical studies to evaluate the impact of chemical (and more specifically endocrine disrupters) and physical (electromagnetic field) environmental exposures on human health.

Our research program can be divided in three connected axes
