Molecular and Cellular Responses to Xenobiotics
Feb. 2020 – Sonja Boland will spend 6 months in Sergio Moya’s laboratory at the CIC biomaGUNE in San Sebastian, Spain, as part of the European BIORIMA project. This collaboration allows the development of organoid models to evaluate in vitro the toxicity of nanobiomaterials in the respiratory tract.
Feb. 2020 – Stéphanie Devineau will spend 6 months in Pr Katsumasa Fujita’s laboratory, at the University of Osaka (Japan), in the Department of Applied Physics. This mission will allow the development within the Laboratory of approaches by Raman spectroscopy.
Dec. 2019 – Florent Busi and Fernando Rodrigues-Lima give a series of lectures at Saint-Joseph University of Beirut as part of their master’s courses.
Dec. 2019 – Stéphanie Devineau participates in the 17th International Conference on Biomedical Engineering (ICBME) which takes place from December 9 to 12, 2019 in Singapore. She presented her work at the Symposium on Biomedical Nanotechnology. This visit is part of the collaboration with James Kah of the National University of Singapore (NUS).
Nov. 2019 – Armelle Baeza presents the results of the toxicological evaluation of African particles carried out as part of the DACCIWA programme at the international seminar on air quality in French-speaking African cities. The conference is organised by the GUAPO (Global Urban Air Pollution Observatory), 28-29 November 2019, Paris.
Oct. 2019 – Francelyne Marano gives a conference as part of the 2019 Fête de la Science : “Faut-il avoir peur des nanos ? Le vrai du faux”, 11 october 2019, Paris.
Sept. 2019 – Sonja Boland presents alternative models for the study of respiratory pathophysiology in humans at the FRANCOPA seminar “Use of alternative methods for the study of physiology and pathology”, 24 September 2019, Paris.
Sept. 2019 – The study by Pascal Roussel and Valentina Sirri-Roussel on the maturation process of precursor ribosomal RNAs is published in the Journal of Cell Science. This study shows the involvement of sirtuin 7 in the cleavage of site 2 of the 45S precursor ribosomal RNA.
Sept. 2019 – Maxime Willart completes his first year internship of BTS Biotechnologies (ESTBA) in our team. He worked with Oliver Brookes and Armelle Baeza on an in vitro model of pulmonary alveolus.
July 2019 – Qing Nian defends his doctoral thesis at the University of Paris Diderot on July 16, 2019. Her thesis subject was the inhibition of the tyrosine phosphatase protein PTN2 by quinone etoposide and the functional characterization of a pathological mutant. Qing Nian was enrolled at the BIO-SPC doctoral school (specialization Biomolecules, Structural Biology, Pathology, Biotherapy). Her thesis was funded by the China Scholarship Council.
June 2019 – Jérémy Berthelet defends his doctoral thesis at the University of Paris Diderot on June 14, 2019. His thesis subject was the effects of reactive metabolites of benzene and an oncogenic mutation on SetD2, a histone methyltransferase. Jérémy Berthelet was enrolled at the BIO-SPC doctoral school (speciality Biomolecules, Structural Biology, Pathology, Biotherapy). His thesis was funded by the Cancéropôle IDF.
