Areas of specialization

ICSA, a federative system based on 2axis

Axis 1: the animal within its bio aggressor relationship (pathogen agents, xenobiotics, environmental stress) takes into account the pathogen host relationship: virulence factors of the pathogen, host defense, cellular and molecular mechanisms of interactions. This axis also focuses on model species related to biomedical targets and promotes a research leading to industrial outcomes.

Axis 2: the animal within its production field
(breeding system, population, territories) in relation to safety control of populations (disease control, adaptation of farming systems, adaptation of animals regarding changing environments).

ICSA covers by his skills all of the themes related to these two axis of research:
  • Theme 1: Infectiology
  • Theme 2: Nutrition
  • Theme 3: Genetics
