Béatrice Desvergne was in “Allez savoir!” magazine for the book she authored

A review on B. Desvergne’s book “De la biologie à la médecine personnalisée. Mieux soigner demain ” was published:

LA COMPLEXITÉ DU VIVANT

Professeure au Centre intégratif de génomique, Béatrice Desvergne nous propose d’embarquer pour un grand voyage, de la recherche en laboratoire jusqu’aux avancées les plus récentes de la médecine. Après un chapitre sur la biologie moléculaire, qui nous emmène au sein des cellules, la chercheuse traite de la biologie des systèmes et de la modélisation du vivant, qui s’appuie sur les quantités impressionnantes de données que récoltent aujourd’hui les biologistes.

Médecine personnalisée
Une fois dotés de cet indispensable bagage, la scientifique guide ses lecteurs sur les rivages de la médecine personnalisée, avec ses promesses, ses succès (certaines maladies rares ou cancers), mais également ses limites: l’auteure ne se départit jamais de son regard critique, et aborde les questions éthiques et sociétales que posent ces innovations.
Un glossaire et des schémas enrichissent utilement cet ouvrage.

CIG internal seminars 2019-2020, every other Thursday, 4pm

The mission of the seminar series is to:
  • get to know each other and learn about each other’s research in an informal setting
  • provide scientific feedback to presenters by colleagues
  • provide advice on presentation skills by PIs attending your seminar (if you’d like to receive this feedback)
Participating in the seminar series could mean the start of a potential collaboration with your colleagues or an opportunity to practice a talk for a congress!
The format is 2 x 30 minute presentations for a broad audience, on a Thursday from 16-17h every two weeks, in an informal setting with an apéro.
The informal setting is emphasized, and the audience will be encouraged to interrupt presenters during their talk for questions.
New! At least once per semester, one of the 30 minute talks will be replaced by 5-minute “flash talks” for new members to present themselves shortly to the community.
New! Each seminar will be chaired by a fellow PhD student or postdoc, who shortly introduces the speaker and takes questions from the audience.
