NeuroTimone Facility (PFNT)

The PFNT Facility is a coherent set of exploration tools in neurobiology allowing research at the molecular, cellular and integrated levels.

  1. Christophe Leterrier (NeuroCyto team) in Nature Materials

    Christophe Leterrier from the NeuroCyto team just published a study in collaboration with the Cytomorpho lab  - Manuel Théry & Laurent Blanchoin, CEA Paris/Grenoble. Entitled “Self-repair protects microtubules from destruction by molecular motors”, this work demonstrates how motor proteins kinesins and dynein can damage microtubule while walking on them, triggering repair by incorporation of new tubulin monomers inside the microtubule lattice. It was published on Jan.

  2. Dominika Pilat (Team 1) on the Neurobinar #4 (NeuroMarseille) !

    Dominika Pilat will be presenting on the Neurobinar #4 on January 21 at 4 pm on Zoom.

    For this fourth edition, NeuroMarseille is pleased to welcome Cédric Maurange (IBDM), Dominika Pilat (INP) and Borloz Émilie (MMG). Dominika Pilat and Borloz Émilie will introduce their respective theses in a cross presentation. After a question session, Cédric Maurange (IBDM) will explain his research on genetic programmes modifying the properties of neural stem cells during development.

  3. INP goes green !

    When you say New Year, you say new resolutions! 
    Increasingly present at the heart of debates and minds, ecology is part of our daily lives and it is our duty to do everything we can to reduce our ecological footprint. The INP has decided to be mobilized for ecology, at its own level. 

    To begin with, we have set up a plastic bottle collection system to recycle our bottles in a short circuit. This is done via the collection system proposed by the company Yoyo, which guarantees delivery to the nearest recycling plant for 100% recycling! We have three collection points on our premises (salle de convivialité R+3, R+1 et R+2 vert). 

  4. Christophe Leterrier (NeuroCyto team) in the Journal of Neuroscience: “A Pictorial History of the Neuronal Cytoskeleton”

    Christophe Leterrier, leader of the NeuroCyto team, just published a special review for the 40th anniversary issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. Entitled “A Pictorial History of the Neuronal Cytoskeleton”, it is a journey through the history of the neuronal cytoskeleton in pictures.

  5. 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.

  6. 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".

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
