Institut de minéralogie, de physique des matériaux et de cosmochimie


The IMPMC is particularly notable in its multidisciplinary approach. This means most topics are studied by researchers from different backgrounds—in physics, Earth science or biology.

Experimental platforms, technical know-how and scientific expertise are all used to conduct research on the interactions between the living world (including bacteria) and the mineral world. Issues include those related to the alteration of minerals of the environment, modeling of protein complexes by cryo-electron microscopy or the synthesis of ultra-hard materials under extreme conditions.



The institute is a research unit associating the CNRS, Sorbonne Université, IRD and Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle.

Director: Guillaume Fiquet, senior researcher at the CNRS
