Nuclear dynamics & epigenetics priority area
In this context, LabEx support is used to stimulate imaging regulated gene expression, from the atomic level up to living organisms, and on identifying new players involved in the regulation of gene expression. We also launched in 2012 a transversal program on “Cellular signaling & Nuclear dynamics”, in order to foster scientific exchange, in particular inviting distinguished speakers. Following a Call, an additional transversal action was launched in 2015 on “Integrative Analyses of Gene Expression and the Epigenome” to stimulate internal and external collaborations.
New appointments in 2014 and beyond
Tom Sexton: junior group leader recruited in the framework of the transversal program “nuclear dynamics and cell signaling”. His research focusses on the study of spatial organization of the genome during T cell development (more about the Team).
Albert Weixlbaumer: junior group leader who studies transcription elongation control at atomic details by X-ray crystallography (more about the Team).
Two additional Calls were launched in 2014:
- in transcriptional regulation at large: study of regulatory elements to chromatin dynamics and epigenetics (view Call - closed)
- investigating the 3D structure and function of macromolecular complexes via an integrated multi-scale approach; interviews scheduled for 26-27 May 2015 (view Call - closed)
The new team leaders from both Calls are expected to join in 2016.
