The Spanish and Portuguese meeting for Advanced Microscopy (SPAOM) was held in Granada this year. The occasion to test a SIM microscope between two interesting talks! Thanks to Paula Sampaio and the organizers for the invitation!
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.

Axons in the Hills was a great 2-day meeting about all things axons was organized by Maren Engelhardt, Maarten Kole, Andreas Draguhn and Paul Jenkins at the Heidelberg University. Christophe chaired the “Molecular Organization of Axons” featuring Marseille colleague Dominique Debanne, Juan Garrido and Elisa d’Este. Fun experience and great science!
Christophe was in Nantes to talk at the first biennale of the Nikon Center of Excellence Nantes (CENN), devoted to “Super-resolution microscopy for Biology”. Diverse and interesting talks from Stefan Balint, James Zheng, Anne Beghin et al. in the beautiful Musée des Beaux-Arts of Nantes.
Christophe was lucky to share the stage with Ryohei Yasuda, Marina Mikhaylova and Sonja Hofer for a symposium dedicated to neuronal imaging. Thanks to Deepak Srivastava for the invite (the fish n’ chips was delicious)!
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 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.
Christophe gave a seminar at IBDM in Marseille, not too far from the lab. Thanks Francis for the invitation!
