The association aim is to constitute an independent fundamental research facility allowing the implementation of theoretical and computational investigations of biological systems through biophysical or quantum chemical approaches. Research subjects will be broached according to the available means (subsidies, settlements). These means will be allowed to result from a collaboration with a company (pharmaceutical, biotechnological, etc.), but the orientation of the research will always have to be for fundamental purposes, i.e., likely to lead to new scientifical knowledge dealing with the structure or functioning of the molecular or supramolecular systems under study.
