Postdoctoral Fellow

“From our study in Drosophila flies we can deduce that it would be particularly interesting to address vertebrates and analyse the participation of p53 in diabetes and obesity”

Postdoctoral Fellow

«Our study highlights the complexity of p38 functions, both in cancer and in the maintenance of normal tissues. It shows why an inhibitor of this molecule could effectively have undesirable side effects. But these do not exclude it from being a target against cancer.»

PhD Student

«I discovered that the bantam molecule drives the transition from larva to pupa, the phase analogous to human adolescence.»

former PhD student in the Translational Control of Cell Cycle and Differentiation Lab

«We suspected that CPEB1, a protein involved in regulating mRNA translation in the cytoplasm, might also be active in the nucleus and play a role in controlling pre-mRNA processing. We discovered that it affects the alternative generation in the mature mRNA of the 3'-UTR, regions where most of the elements regulating translation in time and space are located.»
