  • Le Prix "Les Grandes Avancées Françaises en Biologie" attribué à Lakshmi Balasubramaniam (Ladoux/Mège Lab) par l’Académie des Sciences

    « Les Grandes Avancées Françaises en Biologie » (prix dotés par la Fondation Mergier Bourdeix) de l’Académie des sciences récompensent douze jeunes chercheurs, auteurs d’avancées scientifiques majeures en biologie publiées en 2019, 2020 et 2021 dans des journaux de très haut niveau. Lors d’une séance exceptionnelle en ligne le 22 juin prochain, les lauréats et les lauréates, introduits par leurs directeurs et directrices de recherche, présenteront les travaux qui leur ont valu l’attribution du prix. Lakshmi Balasubramaniam interviendra à 14h35, avec son directeur de recherche Benoit Ladoux, sur le thème: L’importance des forces mécaniques dans l’organisation des tissus.

  • Benoit Ladoux awarded an ERC Advanced Grant 2020 !

    The European Research Council has today announced the winners of its 2020 Advanced Grants competition. The funding will go to 209 leading researchers across Europe (21 in France). ERC Advanced Grants support excellent researchers at the career stage at which they are already established research leaders with a recognised track-record of research achievements. The Institute Jacques Monod (CNRS / University of Paris) warmly congratulates Benoit Ladoux and is delighted with this first ERC Advanced Grant awarded by a member of the Institute!

  • mRNA translation at nuclear pores

    How do proteins reach their final destination in compartmentalized cells? Researchers from the Palancade team have combined RNA biochemistry and imaging approaches to gain insight into the processes that ensure protein delivery to the nucleus. In their study published this month in Molecular Cell, they reveal that a subset of proteins entering the nucleus are actually translated at nuclear pore complexes, through a mechanism involving the recognition of their nascent chains by nuclear transport receptors.
