Evi Soutoglou

Evi Soutoglou is interested in the most deleterious DNA breaks amongst the thousands of lesions our that DNA suffers in each of our cells every day : the Double Strand Breaks (DSB). Her goal is to investigate the dynamics of DSBs in relation to the surrounding chromatin structure and nuclear...

eichmann-21
Anne Eichmann

Vertebrate blood vessels form stereotyped, hierarchical branched networks. Specialized endothelial cells (EC) called tip cells located at the extremities of growing capillary sprouts mediate their directional outgrowth. Research in Anne Eichmann’s laboratory is aimed at understanding the function of tip cell-specific signaling molecules, with the goal to manipulate guided vascular...

The physiological process that maintains a constant number of cells in renewing organs is called tissue homeostasis. Stem cells located in these organs are responsible for the maintenance of tissue homeostasis during physiological condition and tissue repair following injuries. A better understanding of the mechanisms regulating stem cell function will...

Benjamin Prud’homme

Animal’s morphological and behavioral traits are specified by genes during embryological development. Those traits change through species evolution via genetic modifications which are affecting developmental processes. Benjamin Prud’homme’s aim is to identify those genetic changes and to understand how they translate into morphological of behavioral modifications....

Jean-René Huynh

Understanding how germ cells develop is not only of paramount medical interest for reproductive medicine, but is also crucial to comprehend how animal shapes and forms evolve through generations. Jean-René Huynh and his team are focusing on how the genetic information (through meiosis) and epigenetic information (through small RNAs)...

bettencourt dias
Monica Bettencourt-Dias

Mónica Bettencourt-Dias studies crucial structures in our cells, centrioles and cilia. She is investigating their biogenesis, evolution and misregulation using a variety of approaches, model organisms and patient samples....

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....

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...

Arnaud Echard

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