A word from the director

What happens if? 

A group of researchers decides to work together to redefine the interface of biophysics, neuroscience and neurophysiology?

What happens if a group of enthusiasts team up to train the next-generation of researchers? What happens if groups having diverse expertise from optical physics to Medicine join to work together rather than side-by-side?

What happens if fundamental research was not considered an exotic spleen of some long-bearded guys with unruly hair, horn-rimmed spectacles in white lab coats but as indispensable fertile ground for breeding the next generation of ideas?

What happens if cooperation, mutual support, and a true scientific culture provide the conditions for making discoveries rather than incremental, project-driven research.

Next generation. Next ideas. Next discoveries.

This is the essence of SPPIN, a new CNRS-Université de Paris flagship institute for the molecular and cellular Neurosciences.
