Retour sur le MBE 2022

Julian Nüchel, représentant de la société allemande de biologie de la matrice (DGMB),  a reçu le Young Investigatord Award « Dick Heinegard » lors du congres de la MBE en septembre a Florence, des mains de Liliana Schaeffer (Germany) et Alberto G. Passi (Italy). Claire Leclech nominée par la SFBMEc a donné un superbe talk et a très bien répondu aux questions du jury. Bravo à eux et aux 3 autres candidats : Amro Hussien (Switzerland), Neil Marr (United Kingdom) et Arianna Parnigoni (Italy).

Quand à Thomas Loustau de l’équipe de Gertraud Orend (Strasbourg), il a reçu le prix du meilleur poster : Bravo !

 

La SFBMEC soutient la candidature de Claire LECLECH pour le « Dick Heinegard Award » lors du congrès MBE 2022.

Apres appel à candidature auprès des affiliés SFBMEc, c’est Claire Leclech qui a été choisie pour représenter notre société au « Dick Heinegärd European Young Investigator Award », attribué par le congrès MBE, et nommé ainsi en l’honneur d’un des éminents chercheurs internationaux sur la biologie de la matrice (voir ci-dickheinegard3forwebsite).

Claire a reçu une bourse de 500 euros pour participer à ce prix, qui récompense un jeune talent, de moins de 5 ans post-thèse au 1er octobre 2022, pour la qualité de ses travaux. Lors de cette compétition, tous les candidat-e-s européens participants présenteront leurs travaux lors d’une session dédiée à l’issue de laquelle le-a lauréat-e sera sélectionné·e par un comité international.

Claire Leclech a effectué ses études au département de biologie de l’Ecole Normale Supérieure à Paris. Après l’obtention d’un master en biologie cellulaire et biologie du développement, elle a effectué sa thèse entre l’Institut du Fer à Moulin et l’Institut Curie/Pierre-Gilles de Gennes à Paris sur un projet à l’interface entre la biologie et la biophysique visant à comprendre l’influence d’indices topographiques sur la migration de neurones embryonnaires. Elle a rejoint en 2019 le laboratoire d’Abdul Barakat à l’Ecole Polytechnique où elle explore ces mêmes questions dans le contexte du système vasculaire. Plus précisément, elle utilise des substrats microstructurés pour mieux comprendre comment les cellules endothéliales vasculaires détectent et répondent à une topographie basale.

Bonne chance, Claire !

The Extracellular Matrix Pharmacology Congress – ECM2022 June 23-25, 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In June this year the Danish research Foundation  hope to bring together a plethora of experts at a first ever congress: The Extracellular Matrix Pharmacology Congress ECM2022 (https://ecm-congress.org/). The congress is an in-person event in Copenhagen, Denmark (Europe).

Register already now and save money on the early bird discount https://ecm-congress.org/registration/.

The aim of the congress is to discover news drugs and bring together #extracellularmatrix experts across disease fields. Alterations to the extracellular matrix are a common denominator in most chronic diseases. It is time to create a forum for experts to discuss, share and learn from other disease fields!

Session highlights will include:
·      The essential components of the ECM
·      The importance of ECM in cancer: Barrier for entry or exit?
·      Should we treat the ECM or cells in fibrotic diseases?
·      The importance of ECM in lung diseases
·      The importance of ECM in liver diseases
·      Cardiorenal axis and the ECM
·      Tissue destruction in inflammatory diseases
·      Pharmacological targets of the ECM
·      ECM signaling

With the congress, we hope to create a forum that will attract an audience interested in the extracellular matrix (ECM) and drugs that target the ECM. In most chronic diseases, the common denominator is alterations to the extracellular matrix. We believe breakthroughs and discovery milestones in this field may save patients’ lives. We offer a platform to debate essential aspects of ECM Pharmacology, and we have an amazing speaker faculty.

We are pleased to invite you to attend this meeting on Vascular Aging. Populations are aging worldwide and the number of older adults is projected to double over the next few decades, and we are ill-equipped to handle the attendant health care burden. Vascular aging process appears as the principal determinants of the health of elderly people and the main risk factor for the development of cardio-neuro-vascular diseases, as well as cognitive impairment, retinal disease and many other organ failures. It is now time to gather the research community interested in addressing this complex question through a transdisciplinary approach.

The research complementarity of the VIVA Thematic Action of the University of Bordeaux and the LIAC community allow for the implementation of an international meeting that aims to gather high-level specialists that come from different disciplines (biophysics, biochemistry, genetics, cell and molecular biology, tissue engineering, physiopathology, epidemiology and clinic), to synthesize the most recent advance in vascular aging.

Moreover, we want to take advantage of this meeting to set up a winter school to offer to young scientists a unique opportunity to present their work, to meet, and exchange with top international scientists and clinicians in the field.

Presentations concerning all aspects of vascular aging are welcome.

Looking forward meeting you in Bordeaux.
Sincerely,
Thierry Couffinhal & Alain-Pierre Gadeau

Gordon Research Conference on Elastin, Elastic Fibers and Microfibrils, 30th July – 4th August 2017, University of New England, Maine

Gordon Research Conference on Elastin, Elastic Fibers and Microfibrils
30th July – 4th August 2017
University of New England, Maine

 

Elastin, fibrillin microfibrils and an array of associated proteins form elastic fibers which are critical for the formation of the skin, vasculature, lungs, bones, tendons, eyes and other tissues.

Additionally, these microfibrils and associated proteins provide extracellular regulation of growth factors such as TGFβ and BMPs. These signaling pathways are perturbed in many genetic diseases associated with mutation of these proteins. The Elastin, Elastic Fibers and Microfibrils Gordon Research Conference covers topics such as assembly and function of elastic fibers, matrix regulation of cell signaling, enabling technologies for elastic fiber analysis, the genetics and pathobiology of elastic fiber associated molecules in inherited and acquired disorders, tissue regeneration and translational medicine. The Conference is preceded by a 2-day Gordon Research Seminar organized by and featuring talks from graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

There will be a number of opportunities for short talks at the GRS and GRC selected from submitted abstracts (deadline 29th April).

More information on the GRC-GRS website.
