(Engaged Life Science)

Engineering and collective
intelligence in life sciences research

ELiS (Engaged Life Science) coordinates all the life science initiatives. 

ELiS uses research, engineering and collective intelligence to better understand living matter and to face the global sustainable development challenges. 

ELiS combines expertise in computational biology to understand the evolution of the genome with systems and synthetic biology to find new medicine and promote frugal technologies, developed in open mode, so that any researcher, anywhere, can contribute to them.

LPI ELiS (Engaged Life Science)
in-house researchers
+ partner laboratories
+ research projects

On-going activities/projects :

  • Discovering new natural products through citizen science
  • Discovering new antibiotics and antivirals – Projet Sciences à la pelle
  • Engineering bacteria for sustainable bio-production
  • Understanding the immune systems of bacteria
  • Frugal solution for low cost detection of infectious agents
  • Medical solutions (e.g., dialysis machine, screening) under open license

The work carried out is hosted by the Joint Research Unit (Unité Mixte de Recherche, UMR)—a research unit of Inserm and Université Paris Cité —which will remain at the Learning Planet Institute until the end of 2024.
