Conférence Monod-Diderot – Matthieu Piel – 19/01/2024

Le 19 janvier 2024, les conférences Monod-Diderot accueilleront Matthieu Piel (Cell Biology and Cancer department, Institut Curie/CNRS, and Institut Pierre-Gilles de Gennes) qui interviendra sur le thème :

Nuclear size and shape in proliferating and migrating cells


Résumé :

I will present our recent work on the cell nucleus in cells that grow during the cell division cycle or deform when they migrate. We found that the nucleus can undergo important changes in size and shape and we have been working on understanding the physical principles underlying these changes and their functionnal consequences for cells, focusing on immune and cancer cells.


La conférence se déroulera de 11h45 à 13h dans l’amphithéâtre Buffon, 15 rue Hélène Brion 75013 Paris
