“From Gametes to Embryo: basic research and clinical applications”

Sexual reproduction is essential for the propagation of species. It produces new living organisms by combining the genetic information of female and male gametes: oocytes and sperm. Their fusion forms an embryo, whose development is probably the most complex biological event that takes place in nature. However, despite decades of research, much remains to be …

PhD position in macrophage mechanobiology

Macrophages are professional phagocytes of the immune system. One of their key roles is to ingest and digest large particles, a process called phagocytosis, which involves dynamic actin reorganisation and the generation of mechanical forces. The molecular mechanisms involved in phagocytic cup formation and closure, as well as the forces involved in actomyosin contractility, are …
