  1. 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. 

  2. 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)

  3. New publication in Frontiers in Oncology from Team 10
  4. 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.

  5. Just out: NeuroCyto team in Science
  6. New article from the NeuroCyto Team in Neuron
  7. La magie de la fée bleue a une fois de plus opéré

    Nadia Coliac a été l’auteure, metteuse en scène et scénographe d’une expérience théâtrale bioluminescente qui a eu lieu le 19 octobre dernier à Paris sur la scène des arts et des sciences du théâtre de la Reine Blanche. Une expérience grandeur nature d'éclairer tout un théâtre uniquement avec la lumière vivante qui a captivé le public, ce fut un moment magique !

    Cette production artistique et scientifique fait partie de ses recherches dans le domaine de l'histoire des sciences pour réhabiliter la mémoire de " Raphaël Dubois génie de la lampe vivante".

  8. NanoDSF goes high throughput thanks to NT.Robotic Autosampler

    PINT platform recently acquired the NT.Robotic Autosampler that complemented the existing Prometheus NT.Plex nanoDSF instrument which is already equipped with aggregation detection optics to get complete stability characterization.

    NT.Robotic Autosampler is a stand-alone, all-inclusive system with robotic arm, computer, and monitor. PINT is now able to analyze up to 1,536 samples for hands-free characterization of thermal unfolding and chemical denaturation in a single experiment. Incorporate plate temperature control to keep your samples at 4 to 20 °C while they wait in the queue.

    This will permit to scale up the existing applications of the Prometheus :

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 ...
