Our goal is to discover and study the physical principles underlying biological functions such as cell polarity and migration, signaling, nuclear organization or gene expression. Our approach consists of quantifying and perturbing the organization and dynamics of cellular constituents from molecular to cellular scales using advanced light microscopy. We develop cutting edge optical microscopy approaches in combination with advanced data analysis and visualization tools.
Institut Curie - Institut Pasteur partnership: two joint projects to promote innovation and advancement of knowledgeImplementing their collaborative research strategy, Institut Curie and Institut Pasteur have raised the impressive amount of €600,000 to finance two research projects involving two teams from each organization. The MUCTOLIN project, looking at the role of tolerance induced by mucus during Listeria infection, and the TicTac project, which aims to study the effects of geometry on the healthy or cancerous status of a cell or on its development, were chosen.28/04/2023
Maxime Dahan Prize 2021During the 2nd symposium in memory of Maxime Dahan organized at Institut Curie, the Maxime Dahan Prize 2021 was awarded to Valentina Emiliani, CNRS research director at the Vision Institute in Paris04/02/2022
Andrea Iglesias comes from Vigo (Spain). She studied physics in Santiago de Compostela and she also did a master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology there. In the last years she has worked at the Colloids and Polymers Physics Group (GFCP) from her university, where she developed magnetic nanoparticles for cancer treatment. In the meantime, she did some internships in different institutions because she has a strong interest in research at the interface between physics and biology.
That is why this year she is starting a PhD at Institut Curie in the LOCCO team under the supervision of Mathieu Coppey. Her project will be about understanding single cell movement using optogenetics and different microscopy techniques. She is really excited about that and she can't wait to meet you all!
