About us

Exploring, understanding and treating the brain

The Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience (GIN) was created in 2007 by the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research (Inserm), the Joseph Fourier University, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and the Grenoble University Hospital Center (CHU).

The GIN groups Grenoble research teams specializing in the study of physiological processes or in pathologies of the nervous system and in the development of innovating techniques to explore them.

Located nearby the University Hospital Center and integrated into the Health Sciences Campus of Grenoble, the GIN consists of 250 researchers, teacher-researchers, clinicians, engineers, technicians and students divided up into teams. There are many available technological platforms (such as nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI), confocal and two-photon imaging, electron microscopy, proteomics, transcriptomics…) that belong to local infrastructures approved by the GIS IBiSA (Biology, Health and Agronomy Infrastructures).
Our Location


The GIN has developed several partnerships with research centers at a national and a European level but also all over the world.
