  • Ana-Maria Lennon-Duménil
    Ana-Maria Lennon-Duménil, lauréate d’un ERC Advanced Grant
    Le Conseil européen de la recherche (ERC) a annoncé le 26 avril 2022 les lauréats des prestigieux « ERC Advanced Grants ». Parmi les quatre Français sélectionnés en sciences de la vie : Ana-Maria Lennon-Duménil, chercheuse de renommée internationale en immunologie pour son projet qui explore un mécanisme inédit de certaines cellules immunitaires dans l’équilibre intestinal.

  • Macrophages Clotilde Théry
    Extracellular vesicles to fight triple-negative breast cancer
    Triple-negative breast cancer is a tumor for which the search for new therapeutic solutions is crucial. Clotilde Théry’s team at Institut Curie has just shown for the first time, and unexpectedly, that extracellular vesicles in tumors induce macrophages that could promote anti-tumor responses.

    Macrophage populations in breast cancer
    In contrast to the current consensus, the presence of macrophages around breast cancer is not necessarily a bad sign, according to the work conducted by Eliane Piaggio’s Translational Immunotherapy team at Institut Curie. Biologists reveal a new population of macrophages that is associated to better prognosis for breast cancer patients. These results were published in the journal Cell on March 23, 2022.

Dissecting and modulating reactive anti-tumor immunity in human cancers
Reinvigoration of tumor-specific T cells by cancer immunotherapies, in particular PD-1/PD-L1 blocking agents, has been the most important innovation in the treatment of patients with cancer. Nevertheless, durable clinical benefit is currently limited to a small number of patients. At present, the immunological alterations that occur in human cancers upon PD-1 blockade are not well understood. Usin

Decoding the mode of action of tumor immunotherapies using intravital imaging
Understanding complex interactions between the immune system and the tumor microenvironment is an essential step towards the rational development and optimization of immunotherapies. Several experimental approaches are available to tackle this complexity but most are not designed to address the dynamic features of immune reactions, including cell migration, cellular interactions, and transient sig

Tuning of actin remodeling as driving force for the adaptable activities of T lymphocytes
The activation and function of T lymphocytes is determined by their ability to migrate and to assemble immunological synapses with antigen-presenting cells. Such dynamic properties are highly dependent on actin cytoskeleton remodeling. My research activity has focused on elucidating the molecular control of actin cytoskeleton remodeling in T lymphocytes via the prism of rare immunodeficiencies due
