Laboratory of Osteoarticular Biology, Bioengineering and Bioimaging UMR CNRS 7052 INSERM U1271

The laboratory of Osteoarticular Biology, Bioengineering and Bioimaging  (B3OA) UMR CNRS 7052 INSERM U1271 is affiliated with the CNRS Department of Science for Engineers , with the INSERM , with the Paris University   and with the Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire de Maisons-Alfort .

Since its creation in 1977, the B3OA has developed a renowned expertise for repair and imaging of osteoarticular tissues. Based on its experience, the mission of the B3O lab is to provide world-class research and education on osteo-articular bioengineering and imaging.

The B3OA lab's important knowledge and unique expertise in tissue engineering, medical imaging and cellular and molecular biology enables it to develop innovative, multidisciplinary approaches for orthopedics, dentistry and radiology.
