Bernardo Reina San Martin

Bernardo Reina San Martin is interested in the molecular mechanisms driving the diversification of the repertoire of B-cells, the cells of our immune system producing antibodies. He specifically investigates somatic hypermutation (SHM) and class switch recombination (CSR), two processes involved in the immune response to generate an antibody mediated answer,...

Patrick Mehlen

In adults, cell renewal is precisely controlled, notably by a mechanism involving Dependence Receptors in the control of cell death. In certain cancers, cells escape this process, which gives them a supplementary selective advantage to uncontrollably multiply and form tumors. Patrick Mehlen deciphers those mechanisms to offer novel ways to...

Thomas Lecuit

Thomas Lecuit and his team study how epithelial tissues maintain a robust organization and extensively remodel as they grow and change their shape during development....

Patrick Delmas

Patrick Delmas is interested in sensory neurons that translate thermal, chemical, and mechanical stimuli. His goal is to understand the molecular basis of somatosensation - the process whereby we experience touch and pain - with an emphasis on identifying molecules that regulate electrogenesis of sensory neurons and detect environmental stimuli....

Chedotal
Alain Chédotal

Alain Chédotal is interested in deciphering how one hand migrating neurons and on the other hand neuron extensions to establish connections between one another (axons) are guided in the developing brain. He is also working with his team on new technologies allowing the visualization of developing neurons. Their research should...

Yohanns Bellaïche

Yohanns Bellaïche aims at understanding how cell fate diversity is generated during development and how organs acquire their shape. Using the Drosophila fruit fly model, his interdisciplinary group develops and uses complementary approaches including multi-scale confocal microscopy, physical measurements and opto-genetics to probe both the physical and genetics regulations that...

Mario Pende

Food intake may dictate metabolic adaptations as well as the control of cell growth and proliferation. Mario Pende's goal is to better understand the coordination of these responses. He and his team are stuyding the protein kinase Target Of Rapamycin (TOR) which has an evolutionary conserved role in the integration...

Raphaël Mercier

Raphael Mercier aims at understanding the different aspects the cell division at the heart of heredity, meiosis. Using genetic approaches, he and his group are deciphering the mechanisms of meiotic recombination, cell cycle regulation and chromosome segregation....

Jost Enninga

Jost Enninga establishes novel tools that yield information on the molecular details of bacterial pathogen infection in the context of single living cells with unprecedented spatiotemporal resolution....

Arnaud Echard

Arnaud Echard is interested in the role of membrane trafficking in lipid and cytoskeleton remodeling at each step of animal cell division....
