Congratulations to Nicolas who successfully passed the selection of the doctoral school of physics and of the DOC2AMU program. He chose the DOC2AMU grant because it fits exactly with his background and taste for interdisciplinarity. The supervision will be shared by O. Théodoly and M. Bajénoff (CIML in collaboration with company ALVEOLE. Nicolas will work on the traffic of lymphocytes in lymph nodes studied by in vitro and in vivo approaches.
4 new trainees start their internship this month in the lab:
- Petra Hatoum, M2 research, for 6 months with Philippe Robert and Olivier Théodoly.
- Valentine Seveau, Master 1 in Physics, for 2 months with Marie-Pierre Valignat
- Florent Curnier, Polytech Marseille, for 2 months with Marie-Pierre Valignat
- Nicolas Orain, Polytech Marseille, for 2 months with Pierre-Henri Puech and Laurent Limozin.
P. Robert, X. Luo and A. Sadoun have welcomed engineer students from ECM for a whole day of experimentation on the methodologies and scientific thematics developed within LAI. They have notably performed experimental training on protein patterning, microscopy with migrating T cells, as well as single molecule force spectroscopy with laminar flow chambers.
Thomas, who has been post-doc in the lab for 3 years and left last month, has already joined a private company HalioDx with a permanent contract, and still on Luminy campus.
We wish him all the best!
The 2017 edition of ”13 Minutes Jeunes Chercheurs” has successfully taken place at Alcazar on April 26th. This event is co-sponsored by LAI and lab member Xuan Luo is in the organizing committee. The 13 Minutes Jeunes Chercheurs invited 6 speakers from various fields who are at an early stage of their career to talk about their research to a general public. It has widely received positive feedbacks since its inaugural edition in 2016. LAI is proud to partner with the event.

Omar Ndao is a Master 1 student in immunology who is starting his internship for two months with O. Theodoly and X. Luo
Ronan Lavalley is starting his Master 2 internship for 6 months, with O. Theodoly and L. Aoun.
O. Theodoly (LAI) and M. Bajénoff (CIML) have been selected by the DOC2AMU program on a collaborative interdisciplinary project for a PhD grant of 3 years. They now need to find a non-french candidate for the final audition.
Nicolas Garcia Seyda is a biotechnologist from Argentina and he’s joining the lab this February for a period of six months, to work under supervision of M.P. Valignat in a position funded by our entrepreneurial collaborator Nanolane. The main objective will be to test their newly designed N-Lab, a device combining microfluidics with nano-scale staining-free optical imaging. The device is based on the Wet-Surf (SEEC) technology developed in the lab by M.P. Valignat. More information about the technology can be found on the web site http://www.nano-lane.com/
Welcome to Radia Bouregaa who will be doing her Master 2 internship for 3 months, in the frame of the Marseille University Human Pathologies Program. She will work on the role of Gpr56 in the recruitment of cytotoxic leukocytes under the supervision of Cyrille Mionnet.
