  3. Yvon Berland mentions Vect-Horus as one of the three 3 AMU biotech success stories

    In an interview published by "La Provence" on November 30, 2018 Yvon Bertrand, President of Aix-Marseille University, explains that AMU is very proud of its contribution to the field of Artificial Intelligence but also to the development of companies such as "First Light Imaging", VECT-HORUS or Innate-Pharma. They are real success stories from public research.

  4. INP Team 9 participated in a joint review on Tau molecular structures
  5. New article of the cytoskeleton and neurophysiopathology team

    The last work of team 9 "Tau regulates the microtubule-dependent migration of glioblastoma cells via Rho-ROCK signaling pathway" is now published in J. cell. Science. This work identifies for the first time the role and mechanisms implicating the tau protein in the invasion processes of glioblastomas, very aggressive brain tumors. This work highlights the role of the Tau protein as a common target between cancers and neurodegeneration.

  6. Hervé Kovacic elected president of the CNU section 85

    Professor of Biophysics and Biomathematics at the Faculty of Pharmacy of Marseille, Hervé Kovacic is elected for a six-year term. Section CNU 85 manages the qualifications, promotions and bonuses of teacher-researchers specializing in physicochemical sciences and applied engineering in health. Doctor Pascale Barbier, also from team 9 of INP has been nominated as a member of the same CNU section.

  7. Jean-Michel Paumier successfully defended his doctoral thesis

    Jean-Michel Paumier, former PhD student in Team 1 (Neural Plasticity and Degeneration), has successfuly defended his thesis on Wednesday the 05th of December 2018. After few hours of a nice presentation followed by many questions, the examining board congratulated Jean-Michel for his good work and granted him the diploma of doctor in Neuroscience.

  8. 3 PhD students of the INP participate in the Neuroschool PhD Days 2018

    On December 6 and 7, 2018, Neuroschool PhD Days took place. In this edition entitled "Through the looking glass: beyond our reality", second-year neuroscience PhD students  were invited to present their work.

    It is in this context that the 3 PhD students of the INP took part: Laurie Arnaud, Audrey Jacq and Dominika Pilat.

The GlioME team has popularized a scientific article to make its research accessible to the general public.

The popularization of science is one of the missions of academic research. This article authored by Aurélie Soubéran is intended for children aged 12-13 years and more broadly for the general public, and focuses on a preclinical study on glioblastoma model.

INP Team 9 participated in a joint review on Tau molecular structures

INP Cytoskeleton and Neurophysiopathology team, together with several leading groups in tau biology, has participated in a joint review of the field that just came out in Acta Neuropathologica Communications. This review summarizes the recent breakthroughs in deciphering the molecular structures, both physiological and pathological, of the elusive protein tau.
