    Tnks1bp1 a novel key player in the maintenance of hair cell progenitors.

    Loss of hair cells (HC), the mechanoreceptors of sensory epithelia of the inner ear, is the major cause of non-syndromic hearing disorders. These sophisticated cells are highly sensitive to several otoxic factors including antibiotics, noise or simply ageing because we are born with a finite stoc...

  • Tuesday, June 27th, 2017 - Seminar Nuclear dynamic series Speaker(s) : Alfonso Fernandez ALVAREZ (NIH/NCI, Bethesda (MD, USA))

    Centromeric control of nuclear envelope disassembly

    Chromosome ‘linearity' is so universal among eukaryotes that we assume it to be evolutionarily advantageous. Nonetheless, formidable challenges are presented by linear chromosome ends, as their resemblance to damage-induced DNA breaks makes them vulnerable to degradation and end-joining pat...

  • Wednesday, June 28th, 2017 - CDC Seminar Speaker(s) : Frederic BARD (IMCB - A*STAR in Singapore)

    Journey to the Center of the Cell

    How cells receive and interpret signals from the outside world is a key question in biology. Most signalling is thought to occur through cell surface receptors that transduce signals across the cell membrane and connect to cytosolic signalling cascades. At variance with this model, cell surface r...

  • Wednesday, June 28th, 2017 - CDC Seminar Speaker(s) : Vivek SHENOY

    Cell-Matrix Interactions in Fibrosis and Cancer: Multiscale mechano-chemical models

    Much of our understanding of the biological mechanisms that underlie cellular functions, such as migration, differentiation and force sensing has been garnered from studying cells cultured on two-dimensional (2D) substrates. In the recent years there has been intense interest and effort to unders...

  • Wednesday, June 28th, 2017 - Institutional seminar "Mayent - Rothschild" Speaker(s) : Cécile Fradin (Université McMaster d’Hamilton, Canada)

    How many Bcl-2 family proteins does it take to form a pore in a lipid membrane?

               Proteins from the Bcl-2 family preside over what is essentially the “point-of-no-return” in apoptosis. Pro-apoptotic members of the family promote outer mitochondrial membrane permeabilization and cell death, while anti-apoptotic members promote cell survival by blocking th...

  • Friday, June 30th, 2017 - Seminar Immunology series Speaker(s) : Jason Cyster (Department of Microbiology and Immunology, UCSF, San Francisco (USA))

  • Monday, July 3rd, 2017 - Seminar Speaker(s) : Rudy BALLING (Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine University of Luxembourg)

    From systems biology to systems medicine: Easier said than done

    Systems approaches are increasingly used to dissect the pathogenesis of diseases and to develop new preventive and therapeutic strategies. One of the major challenges is the curation, integration and analysis of heterogenous data, both from the biomedical research as well as the clinical domain. ...

  • Tuesday, July 4th, 2017 - Seminar Nuclear dynamic series Speaker(s) : Yamini DALAL (NIH/NCI, Bethesda (MD, USA))

    Twisting the dragon's tail: histone variant dynamics in human tumors

    Dr. Dalal's lab focuses on proteins called histones, which package the entirety of the human genome into a nucleoprotein complex called chromatin in vivo. Specific regions of chromatin are prone to fragility and chromosomal rearrangements in cancer cells. Consequently, understanding how this prot...

  • Wednesday, July 5th, 2017 - Curie TechWatch Seminar Speaker(s) : Georgia Golfis

    Imaris : The ideal solution to interactively analyze microscopy images

    Bitplane is the world's leading interactive microscopy image analysis software company and was founded in 1992 in Switzerland. Through their constant innovation and a clear focus on 3D and 4D image visualization analysis, Bitplane actively shapes the way scientists process multi-dimensional micro...
