Welcome to the First-Step students!

Welcome to Charline Carron and Anthony Elia (group Thorens), Julien Dénéréaz and Lucien Roesch (group Dion), as well as Marie-Pierre Meurville (group Fankhauser-Vital IT), who are joining the CIG for a period of 10 weeks, in order to pursue a research project.



Welcome to Fanny!

Fanny Langlet obtained a PhD under the supervision of Dr Bénédicte Dehouck and Dr Vincent Prévot at the University of Lille. Her graduate work was focused on the role of tanycytes within the blood–hypothalamus interface, and has highlighted a new concept in thFannye glucostatic theory of appetite control. For her postdoctoral training, she joined the laboratory of Dr. Domenico Accili in 2014 to study the transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of key hepatic enzymes involved in the maintenance of glucose homeostasis. She joined the lab of Prof. Thorens in October 2017 as a Maître assistant Ambizione FNS. Her research project focuses on the common and subpopulation-specific molecular mechanisms underlying glucose-sensing by tanycytes.



Congratulations to Jacques Dubochet on his Nobel Prize!


Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson are awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017 for their development of an effective method for generating three-dimensional images of the molecules of life. Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers can now freeze biomolecules midmovement and portray them at atomic resolution. This technology has taken biochemistry into a new era.

The CIG is very proud of the Ombudsman of its post-doctoral fellows and would like to warmly congratulate Jacques Dubochet on his Nobel Prize.

A Facebook live with J. Dubochet is organised by the UNIL on Oct. 6, 2017 at 17:00:
