Understanding brain left-right asymmetry with Cloé Fixary-Schuster
Cloé is a 4th-year Ph.D student from Dr. Stéphane Noselli’s lab, which is interested in the establishment of the left-right asymmetries in Drosophila. While the lab has pioneered several research projects exploring the genetic and molecular mechanisms behind visceral chirality—a common trait among various species—left-right asymmetry in the nervous system remained unexplored. To fill this
Brain and retinal organoids workshop : applications and challenges with Paolo Piovani
Paolo is a 2nd-year PhD student in the lab of Dr. Michèle Studer, whose team is dedicated to the understanding of neurodevelopmental diseases. The team has conducted extensive work to identify key genes involved in brain-related orphan diseases, and Paolo’s current project aims to better characterize the role of these genes. To achieve this, he
CRISPR constructs for in vivo gene editing workshop with Mathilde Solyga
Mathilde is a dedicated 3rd-year PhD student working in the lab of Dr. Florence Besse, where she aims to dissect neuronal processes across scales, from single RNA molecules to organismal behaviour. Her work will allow to address key molecular components ensuring the post-transcriptional control of gene expression and to identify new targets involved in physiological
Exploring biotech & pharma opportunities during your PhD with Niels Fjerdingstad
Niels Fjerdingstad is a determined third-year PhD student working in Thomas Lamonerie’s lab. He’s focused on understanding the complex science behind susceptibility and resilience to anxiety. Recently, he took the opportunity to discuss after-thesis career options with fellow enthusiasts in our club by sharing his experience at the BioTechnoSud forum , where he interacted with
Manipulating sex chromosomes to elucidate their role in longevity with Charlene Clot
Charlene, currently a 3rd-year PhD student working in the lab of Bruno Hudry, is exploring the fascinating domain of sex differences in development, metabolism, and behaviour. Her primary focus is to investigate the impact of sex chromosomes on somatic cells, aiming to understand whether they contribute to the sex-biased longevity gap. Additionally, she plans to
Keeping up with scientific literature by Emily Plumb
As a 2nd year PhD student in the lab of Dr. Rob Arkowitz, Emily explores the mechanisms controlling the spatial and temporal regulation of cell growth. As she advanced through her PhD, it became clear that keeping tracks with the vast amount of newly published articles in her field is not an easy task. Emily
