QBI joitn meeting 2019

On September 5th and 6th 2019, at the Institut Curie (Paris, France), researchers from the QBI (Quantitative Biology Institut, UCSF), PSL-Qlife and Institut Curie were brought together during their inaugural joint symposium. More than 100 participants gathered to participate to this symposium.

Initially, the rapprochement between QBI and PSl-Qlife started through a collaboration between Nevan Krogan, head of the QBI and Aura Carreira, team leader at Institut Curie. As QBI and PSL-Qlife share the same ambition to bring together scientists from many different fields for the development of quantitative biology, it was only logical that they bring their strengths together.

This inaugural joint symposium thus aimed at sharing their work, but also triggering lots of fruitful collaborations between researchers from all three institutes. Moreover, a Memorendum Of Understanding (MOU) has been signed between QBI and PSL-Qlife.

 

The following topics were discussed:

  • Systems biology and cancer
  • Cell invasion, cell movement and motor proteins
  • Autophagy, metal transport and signalling
  • Cell fate and survival mechanisms
  • Targeting cancer
  • Breast cancer

 

Following our inaugural joint symposium with the Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI, UCSF) in September 2019, we decided to push our collaboration further by launching a joint call which would allow to trigger fruitful collaborations between teams from both institutes. Each chosen project received a total of 150K (75K per teams) for a duration of 2 years.

 

This symposium will be organized again next year and will take place online on December 1-2, 2020. More informations
