  1. Fondation Vaincre Alzheimer's visit at the Institute of Neurophysiopathology (INP)

    A few weeks ago, the Vaincre Alzheimer Foundation came to visit the Institute of NeuroPhysiopathology and made a short documentary on the team Neural Plasticity and Degeneration (Team 1), led by Santiago Rivera who was recently funded by the Foundation. It was an opportunity for him to thank Vaincre Alzheimer and the donors and talk about the importance of MT5-MMP, a protease that contributes to the pathophysiological mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease and may become a potential new target.

  2. MedIM 2020 : retour d'expérience

    Dans la semaine du lundi 07 décembre au vendredi 11 décembre s'est tenue avec succès la première édition de l'atelier MedIM (Methodes d'étude des Interactions Moléculaires) co-organisé par la Plateforme INteractome Timone (PINT) de l’INP, la plateforme de Biologie Structurale de l’AFMB et les plateformes de l’IMM, toutes trois labellisées "Plateformes Technologiques du site d'Aix-Marseille".

  3. The NeuroCyto team receives two ANR grants in 2020

    The NeuroCyto team led by Christophe Leterrier was awarded two collaborative ANR grants in the 2020 call. The first project, “How actin/spectrin scaffold shapes axonal physiology” (ASHA), is coordinated by C. Leterrier in collaboration with the teams of Stéphane Vassilopoulos (Institut de Myologie, Paris) and Emmanuel Nivet at INP.

  4. Laurie Arnaud (Team6) on the Neurobinar #3 (NeuroMarseille) !

    Laurie Arnaud will be presenting on the Neurobinar #3 on December 17 at 4 pm on Zoom.

    For this third edition, NeuroMarseille is pleased to welcome Christelle Baunez (INT), Laurie Arnaud (INP) and Nada El Mahmoudi (LNSC/LNC). Laurie Arnaud and Nada El Mahmoudi will introduce their respective theses in a cross presentation. After a question and answer session, Christelle Baunez (INT) will explain her research on the role of basal ganglia (GB) in motivation and reward processes.

  5. Dr. Emeline Tabouret (GlioME team) in collaboration with Dr. Rafael Arguello (CIML Institute) published a new paper in Cell metabolism journal

    This paper entitled "SCENITH: A Flow Cytometry-Based Method to Functionally Profile Energy Metabolism with Single-Cell Resolution" presents a new technique to study the metabolic responses in multiple cell types in parallel by flow cytometry.

  6. A successful partnership between the APHM Pathology department / the GlioME team and ID-Solutions industrial society.

    A successful partnership between the APHM Pathology department / the GlioME team and ID-Solutions industrial society (https://www.id-solutions.fr/fr/), has led to the developement of ready-to-use kits for the detection and quantification by digital PCR of key genetic alterations of brain tumours, specifically gliomas.

  7. Emeline TABOURET and Chiara BASTIANCICH recieved a grant of 30 000€ each

    Dr. Emeline Tabouret (MCU-PH) and Dr. Chiara Bastiancich (Post-doc) from the GlioME team received the "Emergence" grant co-funded by the Canceropôle PACA and the Association pour la Recherche sur les Tumeurs Cérébrales (ARTC-Sud).

    Dr. Tabouret wants to develop CAR-T cells directed against glioblastoma stem cells. The first step will be to design and then transfect the CARs into T cells and analyze their efficacy in vitro. The second step will consist of analyzing the in vivo efficacy of the CAR-T cells.

  8. Logo PFNT
    Le label « Plateforme Technologique Aix-Marseille » de la PlateForme NeuroTimone PFNT a été renouvelé

    Le label « Plateforme Technologique Aix-Marseille » de la PlateForme NeuroTimone PFNT a été renouvelé pour une nouvelle période de 3 ans par AMU, l’Inserm et le CNRS. Pour mémoire rappelons que la PFNT est constituée des plateformes NCIS, PINT et SCeNT de l’INP et de INPHIM de l’INT. La PFNT offre un éventail de prestations technologiques en neurobiologie au niveau local pour les équipes de recherche et start up de Marseille mais aussi au niveau régional et national.
