2nd Symposium tribute to Maxime DAHAN---

Following the first symposium in memory of Maxime Dahan which was held in October 2019, we are pleased to announce the second edition of the symposium. To honor the memory of Maxime who passed away in July 2018, we would like to focus on state-of-the art developments in new imaging modalities and single molecule imaging, with a special emphasis on works that have followed up Maxime’ seminal publications. We will feature short talks on this theme, which will be selected from submitted abstracts.

The symposium will be half on site and half online. For live participants, the symposium will take place in Burg amphitheater, Institut Curie, Paris. Online talks will be broadcasted in the amphitheater, and onsite talks will be broadcasted live.

The symposium will be the occasion to deliver the second Maxime Dahan Prize for Innovation in Methods and Instrumentation at the Interface of Physics, Biology & Medicine.   

The symposium will include 2 sessions of selected short talks. If you want to submit an abstract, please send it to melissa.dewulf@curie.fr by November 16th.

The subscription is free but mandatory, if you want to participate, please fill out this form : https://bit.ly/34T6UPu

We are excited to see you (in person or virtually) in December!

En bref

The Maxime Dahan Prize for Innovation in Methods and Instrumentation at the Interface of Physics, Biology & Medicine.

The prize will be overseen by an internationally recognized scientific advisory committee and delivered at a major scientific conference.



Robert H. Singer received an undergraduate degree in physical chemistry from Oberlin College, and a PhD in developmental biology from Brandeis University. He did postdoctoral work in molecular biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel. Oberlin College granted Singer an Honorary Doctor of Science in 2016. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem granted Singer an Honorary Doctorate in 2018.
He holds the following positions at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York: Professor and Co-Chair, Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology; Professor, Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience; Professor, Department of Cell Biology; Co-Director, Integrated Imaging Facility; and Co-Director, Gruss Lipper Biophotonics Center. Singer is a senior fellow at the Janelia Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Virginia.

His career has been focused on the cell biology of RNA, the molecule responsible for making all the proteins in the cell, it converts the instructions from the gene into reality. A patented technique his lab developed for detecting single RNA in cells revealed that the RNA can be directed to specific cellular compartments. This work has given rise to a new field of RNA transport and localization, enhanced by development of imaging technology and modified RNA molecules. His lab has shown how RNA is made from a gene in a live cell.

His laboratories at Einstein and Janelia have been instrumental in developing rapid and sensitive microscopy that can study single molecules of RNA in living cells and in animals, and in devising methods to track them through their life cycle. This technology has led to understanding the role of RNA in such disease processes as cancer metastasis and intellectual disability. He holds 12 patents on his work, and has founded several biotech companies and sits on the board of and consults with several more.
For his works, he was elected to the US National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
