2017-11-14 : Dynamine, a therapeutic target for different myopathies
The regulation of muscular development is a complex process that is not fully understood and in which among others two proteins, amphiphysin and dynamin, are involved. In this study, Jocelyn Laporte's team at IGBMC show that amphiphysin negatively regulates dynamin activity for normal muscle development and, on the other hand, that a reduction in dynamin levels prevents several types of myopathies. These results were published on November 13, 2017, in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
2017-10-27 : The Graduate School project “Integrative Molecular and Cellular Biology”, selected in the call Programme d’investissements d’avenir
Based on a strategic clustering of Strasbourg assets in molecular and cellular biology from the three laboratories of excellence (LabEx), namely INRT (IGBMC), MitoCross (GMGM, IBMP, IBMC(ARN)) and NetRNA (IBMC (ARN, RIDI), IBMP), and with the support of cutting-edge technological tools such as the four national infrastructures in health biology (INBS) CELPHEDIA/PHENOMIN, FRISBI, France Génomique and Ingestem, together with the equipment of excellence (EquipEx) I2MC, the Graduate School (EUR) Integrative Molecular and Cellular Biology (IMCBio) project was selected on Tuesday, October 24, as part of the Programme d’investissements d’avenir (PIA3). This unprecedented training project is one of the four EUR winners supported by the University of Strasbourg, which has been allocated €25,717,000 for all of these projects.
