CONNECT RESEARCH FIELDS
We promote collaborative and transdisciplinary effort, resource pooling and knowledge sharing. This framework is crucial for achieving breakthroughs, promoting translational research and maintaining a competitive environment.
DEVELOPP INNOVATIVE TOOLS
We are deeply involved in the conception of state-of-the-art techniques based on high-throughput sequencing and clinical grade mass spectrometry. Further, our consortium develop the tools or pipelines needed for data analysis.
ELUCIDATE CLINICAL ISSUES
We seek to elucidate specific clinical issues related to cancer patient management. This involves the identification of biomarker signature from various patient samples; and the development of small molecules-based therapeutic approaches.
A GLIMPSE OF OUR RESEARCH INTERESTS
RNA epigenetic opens unlimited possibilities for clinical applications
On one hand, multiplex analysis of RNA modification for diagnosis/prognosis purpose holds promise for the early detection of cancer as well as other diseases (e.g. neurodegenerative disorders). On the other hand, conception of inhibitors targeting actor of RNA epigenetic might pave the way for a new sort of targeted therapy.
A few things we are great at
We take mentorship very seriously. In particular, we believe having multiple mentors is key to succeed. For this reason we favor PhD co-internships with members of the SMART consortium. This enables student to develop dual skills and strengthen their versatility.
Scientific research is a collaborative effort. We have forged collaborations across France and overseas, in diverse areas of biology (e.g. virology, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases). Besides academic and clinical institutions, we have also established a strong partnership with the private sector.
Innovation is at the heart of our research strategy. It embraces the optimal implementation of existing tools and techniques as well as the development of novel methods and approaches. Designing new tools is essential to capture, analyze and comprehend the increasingly complex nature of molecular biology.
CONNECTING BASIC AND CLINICAL RESEARCH
Improving human health requires to translate scientific discoveries into « real world » applications. Yet, this is a two-way street: by making new observations and asking relevant questions, clinicians stimulate basic research. Our group works in concert with clinicians and seek to provide new perspective in detecting and treating cancer.
