About us

The Laboratory of Cell Physiology, INSERM U1003 (headed by Prof. Natalia Prevarskaya) is one of the world leaders in the field of “Ion channels and cancer”.

We introduced the molecular electrophysiology approach to the study of the mechanisms involved in cancer development and progression.
We developed a systematic approach to identify and validate ion channels and their modulators as novel drug targets and/or biomarkers appropriate for therapeutic and diagnostic use.

OUR MISSION is to establish “calcium and ion channels signatures” for cancer staging in order to develop reliable prognostic markers and define new therapeutic treatment strategies.
