50 years in the fight against infectious diseases 1967 – 2017

Research Laboratories

Our research program efforts rely on a network of laboratories coordinated by the Emerging Pathogens Laboratory in Lyon. Its objective: foster international collaboration for infectious disease research.


The GABRIEL network is an international network of research laboratories with close to 20 members, including the Christophe Mérieux Laboratory in Beijing and the Rodolphe Mérieux Laboratories, created by the Mérieux Foundation, in addition to other research laboratories or institutes in developing countries. They work together on the ground and lead research projects that address local infectious disease priorities.
