University of Rouen, UMR CNRS 6270


The UMR CNRS 6270 (Polymers, Biopolymers, Surfaces) is a research unit of the CNRS, the University of Rouen and INSA of Rouen. The laboratory has three main research axes:

  • Transport into polymers

  • Cell-surfaces interactions

  • Colloids and agro-materials

The partner University of Rouen is involved in these three fields of research. 


Role/activity of the entity in the project:

In the GIMS project the partner University of Rouen has several objectives:

  1. To functionalize polymer or metallic materials by the molecules extracted from algae and identified as potentially antibiofilm.

  2. To perform antibiofilm tests.

  3. To identify the molecular mechanisms involved in the antibiofilm activities by proteomic approaches.

  4. To perform viral filtration experiments on non-woven materials functionalized par by the molecules extracted from algae.
