MiFoBio 2018: the best microscopy workshop!

Christophe was lucky to spend a whole week at the “Microscopie Fonctionnelle en Biologie” aka MiFoBio workshop. Lots of fun attending dozens of cutting-edge workshops, trying super-resolution microscopes, discussing, DJing (!), and presenting the latest work from the lab.

Christophe talks at the French Cell Adhesion Club meeting in Strasbourg

It was a pleasure to present at the 7th Cell Adhesion Club Meeting in Strasbourg. After three fascinating days hearing about cell adhesion and related cell biological processes by top scientists of the field, it was very interesting to see how key tools and concepts can also inform cellular neurobiology. See the #Stradh18 Twitter hashtag for more, thanks to @GoetzJacky for the invite!

Christophe presents at the École des Houches BIOPOL summer school

Christophe gave a conference on “The neuronal cytoskeleton revealed by cellular imaging” at the “Mechanobiology of polarized cell” summer school at the Ecole de Physique des Houches (in front of the Mont-Blanc!). This was organized by the PhD students of the Marie Curie Sklodowska International Training Network “Biochemical and mechanochemical signaling in polarized cells” (BIOPOL). A good occasion to present what super-resolution microscopy can reveal about polarized cells organization, and discuss about the mechanical implications of the axonal cytoskeleton architecture. See more from the #mechanopol18 hashtag on twitter.
