Laboratoire d’Innovation Moléculaire & Applications


Gathering a roughly 90 collaborator staff, the Laboratoire d’Innovation Moléculaire & Applications (LIMA, UMR 7042) is a three-tiered Unistra/UHA/CNRS laboratory which is localized both in Strasbourg and Mulhouse.
This laboratory results from the merger of the Laboratory of Molecular Chemistry (LCM, UMR 7509) of Université de Strasbourg and the Laboratory of Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry (COB, EA 4566) of Université de Haute-Alsace in Mulhouse.
The LIMA is a decisive actor for the scientific site coherence and becomes the largest laboratory dedicated to research in molecular chemistry in Alsace. One of the LIMA’s priorities is to support the emergence of new research fields, to promote fundamental research and to stimulate fruitful interactions with the socio-economic environment. The overall scientific aim of the LIMA is to develop innovative methods dedicated to molecular synthesis, to validate new therapeutic strategies and to apply them in different fields (pharmaceutical and agro-chemistry, eco-responsible chemistry and materials chemistry).
The laboratory is organized in 11 research teams (7 in Strasbourg and 4 in Mulhouse) related to specific scientific domains. In addition to this, a strong technical support is provided by an analytical platform at the cutting edge of modern techniques, dedicated to molecular chemistry and biochemistry, which is spread over the two Alsatian sites.
