Insect Physiology: Signalling and Communication

Updated on 07/15/2014
Published on 10/23/2006

The Joint Research Unit "Insect Physiology: Signalling and Communication" was created in January 2005. It associates staff belonging to three different research and teaching institutes: the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), the Institut National Agronomique Paris-Grignon (INA-PG) and the INRA Research Centre of Versailles (Plant Health and the Environment Department). In a context of sensory neurobiology, the unit's research aims at elucidating the mechanisms of signalling and communication involved in the interaction between insects and their environment and in the adaptation of their physiology and behaviour. Experimental methods cover the molecular, cell and whole insect levels. Our insect models are mainly focused on pest species of economic importance in order to contribute to the development of integrated pest protection.
