The Institut Curie Research CenterInstitut Curie is a major player in the research and fight against cancer. It consists of a Hospital Group and a Research Center of more than 1000 employees with a strong international representativeness.The objective of the Research Center is to develop basic research and to use the knowledge produced to improve the diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutics of cancers as part of the continuum between basic research and innovation serving the patient.



The research team led by Ana-Maria Lennon-Duménil is part of the INSERM Unit (U932) “Immunity and Cancer”, also directed by Dr Lennon-Duménil. The laboratory is located on the 5th floor, 12 rue Lhomond, 75005 Paris. The floor is shared with 3 other teams from U932. Our international team, composed of a dozen people, is entitled Spatio-temporal dynamics of immune cells. We are trying to decipher how the sentinels of the immune system (specifically dendritic cells and macrophages) patrol their environement and migrate in tissues in distinct physio-pathological contexts. Our approaches combine cellular and tissular imaging, microfluidics, single-cell analysis, and genetically modified mice models. Our research interests stand at the interface between immunology and cell biology and are performed in close collaborations with several teams from the Institut and abroad.
