Three research programs of the IRAMIS found an natural extension towards biology:
Knowledge and use of techniques which were traditionally in the physicist or the chemist fields appears valuable in the study of biological objects. Mainly, that relates to laser studies, neutron diffusion and diffraction, nonconventional NMR especially developed for the study of proteins, ICP-MS (coupling gun plasma - mass spectrometry) analyses and nuclear microprobe for the study of biological and environmental samples (micro-organisms, cells, fabrics, plants…).
