Immune cells in the choreography of cerebral development
Neurobiologist Sonia GAREL, Professor at the Collège de France and Member of the Academy of Sciences, has led the « Brain Development and Plasticity team » at the ENS Institute of Biology (IBENS) since 2008. Sonia Garel is a pioneer in the study of the mechanisms that control the assembly of forebrain neural circuits during embryogenesis and postnatal development. Her fascinating research shows that brain activity is regulated by immune cells, called “microglia” that play a key role in neurodegenerative...

Topologically Associating Domains regulate gene activity by restricting enhancer-promoter loops.
Topologically Associating Domains regulate gene activity by restricting enhancer-promoter loops. TADs are formed by loop extrusion and its blocking by CTCF at their boundaries. How optimal separation between TADs is achieved remains incompletely understood.  I will present our recent work showing that most TAD boundaries consist of clustered CTCF sites, with each site imperfectly and additively contributing to loop extrusion blocking. Moreover, I will present unpublished biophysical modeling and...

A Deep Learning approach to challenge live imaging of EndoMAMs (endosomal membranes associated with mitochondria)
Jean Salamero is an internationally renowned expert in imaging. He led a team at Curie for many years, working on endomembrane trafficking and developping various live, fixed and correlative imaging methods. In addition to his research acitivities, Jean played a major role to develop imaging infrastructures nationwide. He created and developped the Curie imaging facility, he was also a key player for the creation of France-BioImaging and later led this National Infrastructure dedicated to biological...
