About us

Pierre-Gilles de Gennes Institute - IPGG -
is a community of researchers working on microfluidics and its applications.
Speaking of the Industry world and Research, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes used to say that « both have everything to gain by working together ». Regarding the frontiers between scientific domains, he stressed that we should be able to overcome them in order to make each scientific domain more successful and fully exploit their potentials. The IPGG was built around these axes.

Who are we?

The IPGG brings together complementary expertise (physicists, biologists, chemists, engineers) around a transdisciplinary theme to develop fundamental research and hatch breakthrough applications, valorised via start-ups or through industrial partnerships. The IPGG has become one of the world leaders in the field of micro- and nanofluidics, with numerous prestigious partnerships in both the academic and business worlds.
