  • Tuesday, September 27th, 2022 - Seminar Cell Biology Series Speaker(s) : Alexandra Cambi (| Chair | Dept. Cell Biology| | RIMLS | Radboudumc)

    Mechanical and biochemical signals influencing dendritic cell functions.

    Specialized leukocytes called dendritic cells (DCs) are key regulators of immune responses. They crawl within tissues patrolling for pathogens or aberrant cells. Upon danger recognition, DCs mature and migrate to lymph nodes to initiate immune responses. During their life-cycle, DCs experience mu...

  • Wednesday, September 28th, 2022 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Manos Mavrakis (Institut Fresnel, CNRS UMR7249 )

    Genetically encoded actin filament organization reporters for live cells and tissues

    Essential physiological functions, including cell division, cell adhesion and motility, and tissue morphogenesis, rely on the capacity of animal cells to change and adapt their shape. To accomplish these force-dependent tasks, animal cells make use of actin cytoskeletal filaments. The precise way...

  • Thursday, September 29th, 2022 - Institutional seminar "Mayent - Rothschild" Speaker(s) : Miguel CONCHA (Faculty of Medicine, University of Chile)

    Incomplete delamination as a platform for coordinating tissue movements during development.

    A critical step in embryonic development is the allocation of progenitors at the site of differentiation. By combining in vivo imaging and biomechanical manipulation in zebrafish embryos, we reveal a mechanism of progenitor cell allocation mediated by mechanical forces that derives from an incomp...

  • From Monday, September 26th, 2022 To Friday, September 30th, 2022 - International Course Seminar

    Computational Systems Biology of Cancer - Multimodal data integration

    The diversity across tumors from different patients and even across cancer cells from the same patient makes the picture very complex. The idea of ‘personalized' or ‘precision' medicine has been suggested, aiming to find tailored treatment regimen for each patient according to the ind...

    A Spatial Transcriptomics Odyssey

    U900 Unit is happy to announce the creation of a new seminar entitled "A Spatial Transcriptomics Odyssey". The scope of this seminar is to share how people working with spatial transcriptomics data are navigating them, from technological advances to the developpement of computational tools, as we...

  • Tuesday, October 4th, 2022 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Marta LOVINO (University of Modena)

    Learning from DNA sequences: from convolutional neural networks to transformer architectures

    DNA is often referred to as the instruction book of life. No matter how much we agree, it nevertheless contains the description of the coding genes and a multiplicity of regulatory elements, from transcription factors to miRNAs. Furthermore, deep learning techniques have been developed and improv...

  • Wednesday, October 5th, 2022 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Jean-Baptiste Sibarita

    3D quantitative imaging at different scales using single objective light-sheet microscopy

    Assessing protein organization and dynamics in their native cellular context provides invaluable insights into their activities and functions. Fluorescence microscopy has drastically improved and diversified over the last 20 years, allowing major discoveries in cell biology, neuroscience and deve...

  • Thursday, October 6th, 2022 - Seminar Speaker(s) : François LEULIER (Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle de Lyon (IGFL))

    Microbial Influence on Linear Growth

  • Wednesday, October 12th, 2022 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Susanna Chiocca (IEO - Instituto Europeo di Oncologia)


    Strong evidence is now available about the damages produced by the underestimation of gender and sex variables, ranging from low quality research, inefficacy of new drugs, inaccu-rate or late diagnosis, waste of resources and investments, and preventable deaths and pain. A lot of scientific evide...

  • Wednesday, October 19th, 2022 - Seminar Speaker(s) : James Saenz (B CUBE Center for Molecular Bioengineering / TU Dresden)

    Why use many lipids when one is enough? Minimal membrane systems for deciphering the role of lipid complexity

    There is no life without lipids. Lipids are essential for cell-environment interactions, cellular organization, and could have been instrumental in the emergence of life itself. Despite significant evolutionary divergence in the molecular composition of biological membranes, all known life forms ...
