The EU IERP is a unique structure in France and rare in Europe, whose core activity is the animal experimentation on small animals (rodents and fishes) in infectiology, field of the study of bacterial, viral and parasitic infectious diseases ... Some are contagious and / or zoonotic and / or vectorized.
His work allows us to participate in the study of emerging or re-emerging infectious diseases, most of which are zoonoses and / or vectorized diseases ... or even genuine European health emergencies (prions ...) with and for all those who work In the following fields: bacteriology, virology, microbiology, immunology, vaccinology ...
The EU IERP has adapted infrastructures, qualified, competent and experienced personnel to meet the needs of the national, European and international public and private scientific community.
We have a collective experience
Our team ensures the instruction and the implementation of the protocols with seriousness and rigor, it ensures a prudent advice on the projects submitted to him in his fields of expertise, it adapts to the new demands and their specificities, a The world of research.
The EU IERP is a structure in the process of becoming ISO 9001 certified.
The EU IERP is an experimental unit of INRA (National Institute of Agricultural Research); It depends on the Animal Health Department and is located in the center of Jouy en Josas, near Paris (Yvelines).
The entire team is at your disposal to accompany you and assist you in the experimental phase of your research and development project

NINAqua: a new project for new aquaculture feeds

IERP/VIM is a partner in this project which aims to substitute meal and fish oil with alternative raw materials in fish feed.
Les souches de prions présentent des virulences différentes selon la population de cellules qu'elles infectent. Cependant, l'origine de ces différences demeure très mal connue. Des chercheurs de l’Inra viennent de faire un pas décisif pour expliquer ces variations de virulence. Ils ont observé que certaines souches étaient favorisées par rapport à d'autres en fonction du taux de protéine PrP, qui constitue le substrat du prion, dans les cellules cérébrales de souris. Ces travaux, publiés le 23 janvier 2017 dans la revue Nature Communications, ouvrent des pistes pour comprendre pourquoi chaque souche de prion a des cellule-cibles privilégiées dans le système nerveux des mammifères.
