We are pleased to welcome for two months Andrzej Kubiak, a visiting post-doc from the Jagiellonian University in Polland. Andrzej’s is mainly interested in hematopoietic stem cells and will be collaborating with Pierre-Henri Puech on an application of single-cell force spectroscopy to investigate adhesion within the bone marrow.
Launch of the BioPhysImmuno International Research Projet (IRP) supported by the CNRS
The BioPhysImmuno IRP project aims to continue a successful collaboration started through a CNRS Projet International de Coopération Scientifique (PICS) project (20218-2021) between two complementary laboratories, one located in Mexico and one in France. The project has been launched with Pierre-Henri Puech acting as coordinator!

Talk at Bruker instruments!
Pierre-Henri Puech is giving a seminar at the Novel Applications of Optical Tweezers in the Physical and Life Sciences webinar organized by Bruker on October 12! For more information: https://mbns.bruker.com/acton/fs/blocks/showLandingPage/a/9063/p/p-02ec/t/page/fm/2?sid=TV2:isfchtYbJ
LAI welcomes its new students!
LAI welcomes the new PhD students within its fold. This year, 5 students are joining us.
Ismahene Mesbah will be working on decoding protein structural folds, sequence, and structural motifs for the mechanical stability of proteins, and Devam Purohit will be quantifying and manipulating the molecular elasticity of muscle in vitro and in vivo. Both are working at LAI and IBDM and are funded by CENTURI.
We also have Luc David-Broglio who will be developing immunological diagnostic tools that are based on antibody micro-printing and his project is funded by Région PACA, Chandrasekar Subramani-Narayana who will work between LAI and LIS and will use deep learning for image inference, resolution increase and classification of adhered immune cells and is funded by AMU, and finally, Loriane Maillot who will be working between LAI and CIML to investigate molecular dynamics of the thymic immunological synapse during leukemogenesis.
A big welcome to our new batch of students this year, and all the best on your journey!
LAI welcomes new PI!
The lab is excited to have Arnauld Sergé joining its researchers staff. Arnauld is an associate professor in Biology and Physics at AMU. His research is centered on membrane dynamics using single-molecule microscopy and image analysis, with his current project focusing on « Dynamic videonanoscopy of immuno-cancer interactions ».
New equipments on the cell culture platform of the INSERM TPR2 building (U1067-U1072-U1090-U1097)
Thanks to the co-financing of S. Spicuglia (U1090) and a mutual request of the units to the region (U1067-U1090-U1097), the common cell culture platform of the building has recently acquired:
- a sorter BD FACSMelody: 3 lasers, 9 colors and single-cell module
- a BD LSRFortessa X20 cell analyser : 3 lasers, 14 colors
LAI welcomes new Research Engineer Lorenzo Villanueva!
Lorenzo Villanueva joined the lab in March 2019 and he will work under supervision of Felix Rico on developing LabVIEW software as interface for High Speed AFM. Welcome Lorenzo!
LAI welcomes new Post Doc members: Jorge Rodriguez Ramos, Claire Valotteau and Luca Piantanida!
Jorge Rodriguez Ramos joined the lab in November 2018, while Claire Valotteau and Luca Piantanida in January 2019. Jorge is working on the project “ Multi-scale mechanics of dynamic leukocyte adhesion ” and Claire is working on “Evolutionary mechanics of adhesion complexes” project both with Felix Rico. Luca Piantanida works with Ignacio Casuso on “Protein-induced lipids partitioning and cell mechanical properties influenced by Salmonella infection”. Welcome!
