French Microtubule Network 2017

Registration deadline 20th may 2017

3èmes Journées du Réseau France Microtubules

(French Microtubule Network)

3 et 4 juillet 2017, INRA, Versailles  

Les microtubules sont présents dans toutes les cellules eucaryotes -depuis les champignons et les plantes jusqu'aux mammifères et à l'homme- et y jouent un rôle crucial aussi bien au cours de la mitose que dans les cellules en interphase. Leur dysfonctionnement aboutit à des processus de cancérisation et des neuropathologies chez les animaux, et à une perturbation de l’architecture et de la reproduction des plantes. L'universalité des mécanismes mis en jeu dans le contrôle de l’organisation et la dynamique des microtubules explique l'intérêt de confronter les connaissances obtenues par des travaux réalisés sur une grande variété de modèles, dans des situations variées, physiologiques, pathologiques ou thérapeutiques. C’est pourquoi a été créé en 2013 le « Réseau France Microtubules » qui rassemble toutes les équipes et laboratoires français s’intéressant aux microtubules et  qui organise un colloque les années impaires fonctionnant en alternance avec le congrès international de l'EMBO consacré à la recherche sur les microtubules.
Les éditions précédentes de ce colloque ont eu lieu à Marseille en 2013 et à Grenoble en 2015 en réunissant des chercheurs, post-docs et étudiants de plus de 34 laboratoires. Les 3èmes journées du Réseau France-Microtubules se tiendront à Versailles les 3 et 4 juillet 2017.

Microtubules are found in almost all eukaryotic cells -from fungi and plants to mammals and human- and play a crucial role during mitosis as well as during interphase. Defects in microtubules organization or dynamics lead in animals to pathologies, such as metastatic tumors and neuronal diseases and in plants to altered development and reproduction.  
The “Microtubule French Network“ has been created in 2013. This network has the ambition to gather every two years French groups and laboratories working in the microtubules field and using a wide variety of models, in various physiological, developmental, pathological or therapeutic situations. This symposium is held alternately with the international EMBO conference taking place in Heidelberg in even years. Previous editions of this symposium were held in Marseille in 2013 and in Grenoble in 2015, bringing together researchers, post-docs and students from over 34 laboratories. The 3rd days of the “French microtubules network” will be held in Versailles on July 3rd and 4th 2017.
