  • Thursday, December 21st, 2017 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : Brent Stockwell (Departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry, Columbia University)

    Ferroptosis: a regulated cell death nexus linking metabolism, redox biology and disease

    Abstract: Dr. Stockwell will describe the discovery of ferroptosis, a form of regulated cell death characterized by the iron-dependent accumulation of lethal lipid hydroperoxides.  Current data suggest that ferroptosis is an ancient vulnerability caused by the evolution of cells with polyunsatura...

  • Friday, December 22nd, 2017 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Giltae Song

    Identifying genome evolutionary dynamics and its implications

    Abstract: Genome is biological information changing over time. In cancer genomes, there is significant frequency of these changes that are associated with important function with regard to tumor growth. Identifying genome evolutionary changes in cancer genomes is challenging due to its complexity...

  • Tuesday, January 9th, 2018 - Seminar Nuclear dynamic series Speaker(s) : Christof GEBHARDT (Institute of Biophysics, Ulm University, Ulm (Germany))

    Quantifying transcription kinetics with single molecule imaging in living cells and animals

    In a living organism, numerous inanimate biomolecules and their inherently stochastic interactions are precisely orchestrated and organized in space and time, together enabling the enigma of life. Dr. Gebhardt's laboratory strives to understand these molecular interactions and the mechanisms that...

  • Wednesday, January 10th, 2018 - Orsay seminar series Speaker(s) : Jean-Louis Mergny (Université de Bordeaux, Inserm U1212 – CNRS UMR 5320 - Institut Européen de Chimie Biologie (IECB) )

    Quadruplexes are everywhere!

    A number of non-classical pairing patterns are possible between or within DNA and RNA strands. These interactions result in the formation of unusual structures, among them G-quadruplexes and i-motifs. G-quadruplexes (G4) result from the stacking of several G-quartets (formed by hydrogen bonding o...

  • From Thursday, January 11th, 2018 To Friday, January 12th, 2018 - Conference

    Conference Sublobar Resections for Lung Cancer

    We are please to welcome you to the 1st International Conference about Sublobar resections for lung cancer that will take place at the Institute Montsouris on the 11th and 12th of January 2018. The treatment of early-stage lung carcinomas is rapidly evolving. During the last years, we have pro...

  • Friday, February 16th, 2018 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Mark Dawson (Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre building)

    The cancer epigenome: Concepts, challenges, and therapeutic opportunities

    Cancer biology is profoundly influenced by changes in the epigenome. Because the dynamic plasticity of the epigenome lends itself well to therapeutic manipulation, the past few years have witnessed an unprecedented investment in the development,characterization, and translation of targeted epigen...

  • Wednesday, February 21st, 2018 - Orsay seminar series Speaker(s) : Oscar Fernandez-Capetillo (CNIO, Madrid, Spain)

    Exploring the role of replicative stress in cancer and ageing


  • Monday, June 25th, 2018 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Thomas Carell (Center for Integrative Protein Science at the Department of Chemistry, Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich, Butenandtstr. 5-13, 81377;

    DNA Bases beyond Watson and Crick

    Epigenetic information is for example stored in the form of modified bases in the genome. The positions and the kind of the base modifications is one factor that determines the identity of the corresponding cell. Setting and erasing of epigenetic imprints is one factor that controls the developme...
