Thursday October 21st - Meeting, at the Institut Jacques Monod, in homage to Jacques Monod
for the centenary of his birth.
Michel Vervoort, co-leader of the team "Evolution and Development of Metazoans", has been appointed a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France,
in recognition of the quality of his research on the evolution of animals.
Friday June 17, 2011: Jubilee of Jean Cartaud: A life studying the synapse
Meeting on membrane trafficking and dynamics in honour of Jean Cartaud, group leader at the Institut Jacques Monod
Reiner A. Veitia, awarded the 2010 Jacques Salat-Baroux Prize by the French National Academy of Medicine
for his work on FOXL2, a key transcription factor in the development, maintenance and aging of the ovary.
Segmentation is the secret behind the extraordinary diversification of animals.
Segmentation, the repetition of identical anatomical units, seems to be the secret behind the diversity and longevity of the largest and most common animal groups on Earth. Investigators from the CNRS and Université Paris Diderot (amongst others Guillaume Balavoine et Michel Vervoort at the Institut Jacques Monod) have shown that this characteristic was inherited from a common segmented ancestor thought to have lived 600 million years ago and whose presence “changed the face of the world”. This discovery was published in Science on 16 July 2010.
Cells in the flesh and in microtubules !
Investigators in Antoine Guichet's team at the Institut Jacques Monod have used the developing drosophila to study the importance of microtubule reorganization in organ formation. Article published in Developmental Cell.
Secretory pathway's role in the internalization and signaling of EGF receptor
A novel mode of regulation of internalization (endocytosis) and signaling of EGFR involved in tumor cell proliferation has been revealed by investigators at the Institut Jacques Monod. Article published in Journal of Cell Science
June 7 - 9 2010 - 13th Meeting "Young Researchers in Life Sciences"
organized by the associations of young researchers of the Institut Jacques Monod, Institut Curie, Institut de Biologie de l'ENS, Institut Pasteur, Unité Biologie Fonctionnelle et Adaptative, UMR Epigénétique et Destin Cellulaire, and the French Association of Scientific Physicians and Pharmacists.
Friday June 4, 2010 - Symposium sRNAs EVERYWHERE!
This Symposium highlights the increasingly diverse roles attributed to RNAs in all walks of life.
Thursday May 20 and Friday 21, 2010 - International workshop organized within the scope of the Network of Excellence "Rubicon" : Role of various types of ubiquitin chains in membrane trafficking
This workshop, sponsored by the European network Rubicon, was an opportunity for researchers to summarize present knowledge on the involvement in protein trafficking of oligo- or polyubiquitin chains differing from UbK48.
