The CRCI²NA is a multi-team research structure led by a director and a deputy director. Since January 2022, the laboratory is composed of twelve research teams under the responsibility of one or two researchers or teacher-researchers.
The objectives of the CRCI²NA are to looking at, understand and treat human cancerous pathologies. To this end, each team studies one or more components of tumours, which they understand as a cellular ecosystem whose establishment and evolution are governed by the communications exchanged.
To do this, the teams deploy a wide range of scientific, technical and technological skills which define the CRCI²NA as a multidisciplinary site, mainly under the responsibility of the ITMO Cancer but also of the ITMO I3M and Technologies for Health.
