Centre de Biologie du Développement
The Centre de Biologie du Développement (CBD; UMR5547) is located on the campus of the University Paul Sabatier-Toulouse 3 in Toulouse, France. The CBD is a member of the FRBT (Fédération de Biologie de Toulouse), which includes six other units on the campus of the University.
Currently, the CBD hosts 12 research teams, which use a variety of integrated animal models (Drosophila, zebrafish, mouse, Xenopus and chicken) as well as various cell lines.
These teams work on closely related topics whose aims is to gain a better understanding of the molecular, genetic and cellular mechanisms controlling metazoan development, including those involved in certain diseases (cancers, neurodegenerative diseases) using genetic, molecular and cellular biological approaches.
