Collaborative Research Programmes

With its applied research programmes, Fondation Mérieux pursues objectives such as improving the ability to detect and identify emerging infectious agents and developing diagnostic tools enabling improved epidemiological monitoring on a global scale, distributing these tools extensively and promoting advanced research in developing countries.

Fondation Mérieux is also directly conducting programmes carried out in the laboratories of its partners and those within the Rodolphe Mérieux Laboratories.

The aim of this scientific work is to increase understanding of the infectious diseases that affect underprivileged countries and to develop tools for analysis or diagnosis that are adapted to the local constraints.

Fondation Mérieux is particularly dedicated to speeding up the access of diagnosis within developing so there are more suitable methods of diagnosis, from upstream research to application within the field.
