A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

3rd October 2017. Organising the symposium Future of Parasitology was a lot of work but thanks to the support of Lucy, Rogerio and Sélima, it has been a success!

December. Now this is the thesis month! 3 juries and 2 committees, with some really nice science from young scientists in Nice, Bordeaux, Lyon or Gif sur Yvette.

November.  This is the teaching month with lectures at UPMC, Cochin, La Pitié-Salpètrière, the Muséum of Natural History and the La Laguna University in Tenerife for the first RIIP-ULL course.

30th May: First visit in Saclay, promising interactions ahead…

28th May: Flurry of activities this month with writing-up and revision of multiple papers, the lab retreat and the Trypanosomatid meeting plus the Pasteur 2025 project!

1st March: Was part of the HDR committee of Marie Diogon (Frédéric Delbac’s lab) in Clermont-Ferrand where she presented intriguing data on the interactions between microsporidia, honeybees and pesticides. This is really complex, so important and actually shares some parallelisms with our work on trypanosomes and tsetse flies…

5th February: Excellent day in Grenoble for the public viva of Amandine Pitaval (Manuel Théry’s lab) who presented fascinated data on cilia formation and positioning in RPE1 cells grown on micro-patterns.

16th December. Busy trip in the USA, visiting Kent Hill and several other labs at UCLA before participating to the ASCB annual meeting in San Diego. Plenty of new ideas in mind…

15th October: We are back from an exciting meeting in Strasbourg on cilia, flagella and centrosomes that was organised by Vincent Marion with support from the GDR. Cécile and Eloïse gave oral presentations. We were in the parliament of the Alsace region, that was quite an experience! Jamin got the opportunity to meet Esben Lorentzen for the first time and we could discuss in details about the IFT172 project.
