The UMR 7242 "Biotechnology and cell signaling" is a joint research unit supported by the CNRS and the University of Strasbourg. We develop research at the crossroads of functional genomics and chemical biology in order to decode cellular signaling pathways and develop new therapeutic strategies.

The UMR 7242 is located in the research building of the Ecole Supérieure de Biotechnologie de Strasbourg (ESBS) in the Illkirch research campus. The unit hosts several research teams working mainly on two scientific themes: the pathways protecting genome integrity, and the signaling pathways at the cell membrane.
