The Institute of Biology of the Ecole Normale Supérieure “IBENS” was created in 2010. It is  affiliated to the ENS, the CNRS and Inserm institutional bodies. The research staff of the IBENS comprises 24 independent groups organized in four sections: Developmental Biology, Neuroscience, Functional Genomics, and Environmental and Evolutionary Genomics. Researchers at the IBENS benefit from common strategic investments including optical imaging and electron microscopy, high-throughput sequencing, computing, protein production, animal (mice, rats, zebrafish, xenopus) and plant facilities.

Multidisciplinary research is further reinforced by local interactions and collaborations with the departments of physics, chemistry, mathematics, and cognitive sciences at the ENS.
