DISTINGUISHED LECTURE IN BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING (sandwiches served) Abstract: Characterization of protein secondary structures at interfaces in situ and in real time is important to understand biological processes associated with cell membranes and solve problems in various fields of biomedical sciences. However, such characterization is challenging because it requires methods that are both selective to interfaces ...

BMI SEMINAR // Transcriptional regulation of survival of dopaminergic neurons and its implication in Parkinson’s disease
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common movement disorder characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra pars compacta. Accumulating evidence indicates that the interactions between genetic and environmental factors cause PD. Although several monogenic mutations linked to rare familial PD have been identified, other genetic determinants causative for sporadic PD, ...

Comment l’échelle d’observation d’un phénomène peut-elle influencer la recherche? À quelles conditions est-il possible de passer d’une échelle à une autre? Ce passage, que l’on métaphorise souvent en termes de distance, est-il discontinu ou continu? Quel rôle joue l’instrumentation, la modélisation et les outils numériques dans ces divers niveaux d’analyse? Les mêmes questions se posent ...

Abstract: Humans have been influencing the DNA of plants and animals for thousands of years through selective breeding. Yet it is only over the last 3 decades or so that we have gained the ability to manipulate the DNA itself and directly alter its sequences through the modern tools of genetic engineering. This has revolutionized ... Read more about "IGM Colloquium: Cybergenetics: Rationally-designed genetic control systems"

Advances in deep generative models are at the forefront of deep learning research because of the promise they offer for allowing data-efficient learning, and for model-based reinforcement learning. In this talk I’ll review the foundations of probabilistic reasoning and generative modeling. I will then introduce modern approximations which allow for efficient large-scale training of a ...

Apathy is a common and debilitating negative symptom of schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric disorders. While originally defined as an impairment of motivation, apathy has recently been defined as a quantitative reduction of goal-directed behavior. Treatment options for apathy remain very limited, in particular for patients with schizophrenia. In this talk I will present a research ...
