Currently "TOR de France" is a unique conference series in the world entirely devoted to field of "Target Of Rapamycin" signaling, nutrition, growth, metabolism, development. The "TOR de France" meeting gathers students, postdocs, research group leaders and medical doctors working on various aspects of TOR biology and the applications in medicine, pharmacology, human health.
