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

On January 19th 2024, the Monod-Diderot conference will welcome Matthieu Piel (Cell Biology and Cancer department, Institut Curie/CNRS, and Institut Pierre-Gilles de Gennes) who will present:

Nuclear size and shape in proliferating and migrating cells



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.


The conference will be at 11.45 am in the Buffon amphitheater, 15 rue Hélène Brion 75013 Paris
