A day at the cell centre

to celebrate the career of Michel Bornens and his contribution to cell biology,

held at the Curie Institute (Amphitheatre Constant Burg) the 17thof May 2019.


At the centre of most metazoan cells is the centrosome, a major microtubule organising centres. Centrosomes are important for polarity, cell division, signalling, immunity, motility and animal development. Thus, their impairment leads to a plethora of diseases including ciliopathies, microcephaly, dwarfism and cancer.

Dr. Michel Bornenshas been working on centrosome during a large part of his career and significantly contributed to our understanding of this organelle.

This one day symposium is for celebrating the career of this brilliant scientist and having an overview of the latest development on the topics by Michel’s collaborators and students.
