Abstract : The life of any organism depends on the ability of cells to accurately recognize and eliminate harmful microbes. In order to detect the immense repertoire of pathogenic entities, the innate immune system of mammals has evolved a range of distinct sensing strategies. One major mechanism is based on the recognition of microbial DNA ... Read more about "Innate DNA sensing through the cGAS-STING system - Blurring the boundary between PAMP and DAMP"

Protein conformational changes induced by external perturbations or internal cues can profoundly influence protein activity and thus modulate cellular physiology. Mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomic techniques are routinely used to measure changes in protein abundance, post-translational modification and protein interactors, but much less is known about alterations in protein structures. Prof. Paola Picotti will present a ... Read more about "In situ analyses of protein structural changes in health and disease"

Electroencephalography and surface electromyography are notoriously cumbersome technologies. A typical setup may involve bulky electrodes, dandling wires, and a large amplifier unit. The wide adaptation of these technologies in numerous applications has been accordingly fairly limited. Thanks to the availability of printed electronics technologies, it is now possible to dramatically simplify these techniques. Elegant electrode ...

Microscopy has fueled biological discoveries for centuries, but technical progress during the last decades has greatly expanded the type and quantity of biological information that can be revealed by imaging. Advances in instrumentation, labeling and computation are driving an imaging data tsunami on par with that of DNA sequencing. We illustrate this trend and discuss ...

Previous studies have identified well-replicated structural abnormalities of white matter in schizophrenia, including in first-episode and treatment-naive patients. However, the causality of these changes has been difficult to ascertain. Seemingly unrelated abnormalities of parvalbumin (PV) interneurons in schizophrenia post-mortem neocortex have also been consistently observed, the leading candidate mechanism for disease-related deficits in gamma oscillations. ...

MoveOn, a commission of Agepoly, offer free disco-fox lessons. Disco-fox is a couple dance that is performed on current music, on what you can hear on the radio for example. The lessons take place in the Polydôme at EPFL on Tuesdays. 18h30 : Hustle (4-count disco-fox, recommended for complete beginners) 19h45 : Disco-fox, with choreography ...
