    Une nouvelle approche pour décrypter la dynamique des microtubules
    L'Institut Curie vient de développer une nouvelle approche pour optimiser l’analyse de la dynamique du cytosquelette et celle des protéines interagissant avec les microtubules. Elle ouvre des perspectives de compréhension de mécanismes clefs en biologie et de phénomènes pathologiques survenant lors des mutations des protéines associées aux microtubules (MAP).

    Aglaia Therapeutics : une nouvelle start-up de l’Institut Curie et Gustave Roussy lève 4M€ pour combattre la résistance aux thérapies ciblées
    L’Institut Curie et Gustave Roussy, principaux centres européens de lutte contre le cancer, ont annoncé la création de leur spin-off Aglaia Therapeutics, co-fondée avec le fonds d’investissement Advent France Biotechnology. La start-up vient de lever 4M€ pour le développement de thérapies de nouvelle génération capables de contrer la résistance des cellules tumorales aux thérapies ciblées. Les fonds seront utilisés afin d’accélérer les études précliniques nécessaires à l’identification de son premier candidat médicament à développer en phase clinique.

    RNA and cancer: the translation process influenced by multiple factors
    Over the past few months, it has been garnering attention in the news. The development of therapeutic mRNAs has benefited from more than 20 years of research on mRNA. For instance, Stéphan Vagner’s team at Institut Curie, in collaboration with Caroline Robert, a clinician at Gustave Roussy, has examined the mechanisms regulating the “translation” of mRNA into proteins in cancer for many years.
