Laboratory of Excellence GR-Ex

The GR-Ex project

Over the past two decades, although dealing with important basic and clinical challenges, the field of red cell biogenesis has become neglected among young physicians and the scientific community.

Thus, the GR-Ex project stemmed from the idea to both unite the most talented research groups working in the field of erythropoiesis and to attract new scientists from other fields to the red blood cells and iron metabolism.

The Labex GR-Ex consortium

Currently, the Labex GR-Ex is comprised of 32 research groups, including researchers and clinicians, some being new to red cells. The core mission of the GR-Ex is to comprehensively investigate physiology and pathologies of erythropoiesis, red cells and iron metabolism.
