Bienvenue sur le site du centre de recherche de l’Institut Curie
At Institut Curie Research Center, researchers and medics joining from all the world share the same motto: Working with Curie’osity’ for discovery beyond all borders, disciplines and scales to dive into the secrets of science and medicine.
You will be able to navigate through the four major domains of research. First, the biology of radiations, cell signaling and Cancer, second Development biology, Cancer, Genetics and Epigenetics, third integrative tumor biology, immunology and environment, and fourth multiscale Physics-Biology-Chemistry and Cancer. These domains are highly interconnected via transversal activities involving our advanced training unit, and our technological platforms that constantly evolve to match new challenges.Read more
Dr. Jean-Pierre Quivy (Institut Curie UMR3664 – G. Almouzni team “Chromatin Dynamics”) will present an ongoing project in which a marker of centromeric chromatin was found to be high ... Read more
Any cell population growing in confinement can experience a growth-induced compressive stress, from bacteria to animal cells. We observe in the budding yeast S. cerevisiae that growth decreases under ... Read more
Drug resistance dissemination by horizontal gene transfer remains poorly understood at the cellular scale. Using live-cell microscopy, we reveal the dynamics of resistance acquisition by transfer of t ... Read more
In human cells, two meters of DNA sequence are compressed into a nucleus whose linear size is five orders of magnitude smaller. Deciphering how this amazing structural organization is achieved and how ... Read more
