  1. Welcome to Guillaume, a new Master 2 student in the Nivet Team!

    We are please to welcome Guillaume Benhora-Chabeaux for his 5-month Master internship (2nd year) in the Nivet team. After obtaining a first Master degree in Cognitive Science (MASCO) from the Aix-Marseille University, with the highest honours, Guillaume has enrolled the Master in Neuroscience (cellular and molecular neuroscience). Guillaume will be working on the crosstalk between inflammation and a susceptibility to neurodegeneration using in vitro and in vivo models.

  2. Emmanuel Nivet (Team 6) is a new member of the European Scientific Advisory Board

    Dr Emmanuel Nivet has been appointed as a new member of the European Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) of a joint organization unifying the Alzheimer Forschung Initiative e.V. (AFI), Germany, Alzheimer Nederland (AN), The Netherlands and Fondation Vaincre Alzheimer (FVA), France. Each of the above organizations is dedicated to funding dementia research in its own country.

  3. Zoom sur la 5ème édition de la classification de l'OMS des tumeurs du Système Nerveux Central
  4. Recent works on Zinc binding to S100A1 and to NCS-1 published in Biomolecules and in  International Journal of Molecular Sciences respectively

    Team 9 (Cytoskeleton and Neurophysiopathology) and platform PINT (platform interactive Timone) are happy to see the almost simultaneous publications of two papers about about the impact of Zn2+ binding to NCS1 and to S100A1 respectively with their collaborators from Belozersky Institute of Physico Chemical Biology, Lomonosov Moscow State University, while the third one about Tau protein Zn2+ binding sites has been under review for already 3 months ... 

  5. Tau & Glioma : new article from INP team 9 and team 8 in Cancers
  6. INP participation to AMU's 1st Digital Sciences and AI for Health conference

    On November 25 and 26, the conference "Digital Sciences and Artificial Intelligence for Health at Aix-Marseille University" was held in the Grisoli amphitheater & the Great Hall of the Faculty of Medical and Paramedical Sciences - Timone. 

    The aim of this conference was to formally bring together for the first time all the actors of Aix-Marseille University and the University Hospital Center involved in the digital and AI/health field, whether they are clinicians or theoreticians. 

  7. L'institut TranceScience, présidé par François Féron, dans Le Monde

    Plusieurs chercheurs de la communauté marseillaise des neurosciences, notamment l’équipe d’Agnès Trébuchon, mènent des recherches sur les fondamentaux et les effets thérapeutiques de la transe cognitive auto-induite. Tout comme l’hypnose ou la méditation, il s’agit d’un état modifié de conscience, induit par la seule volonté de chacun. A l’occasion de la création par Paris VIII du premier diplôme universitaire (DU/DESU) sur cette pratique, Le Monde a consacré une double page aux recherches menées par l’Institut international de recherches sur la transe (TranceScience), présidé par François Féron (équipe NOSE, INP)

  8. New Post-doctoral fellow in team 1

    Neural Plasticity and Degeneration team has recently welcomed Shweta SONAWANE.

    Shweta is from Mumbai (India) she did her Ph.D. at the Biochemical sciences division of CSIR - National Chemical Laboratory in Pune (India).

    Her doctoral research was largely focused on Tau pathology in Alzheimer’s disease studying in particular the effect of glycated and phosphorylated Tau on cytoskeleton integrity as well as aggregation propensity in order to find small molecules that could attenuate Tau aggregation and prevent its glycation.
