19-07-2013 A new record for Brice, Christina, Benjamin, CP and Philippe with over 40 km!
12-07-2013 Benjamin almost blew up the bike in the sprint...
05-07-2013 Our team cycled for 19 km for the 'Pédalons pour Pasteur' charity campaign. Congratulations to Diego, Julien, Benjamin and Philippe who sweated for the Institute! (and we narrowly defeated Paola's team...)
01-07-2013 Arrival of Christina Georgikou who is coming from the University of Crete (Greece) for a 3-month project with CP.
28-06-2013 Thierry is awarded the "Médaille d'honneur du travail"!
13-06-2013 Philippe is awarded the Pasteur Vallery-Radot prize at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. This prize is attributed to two young scientists working at the Institut Pasteur for "major scientific work in biology, chemistry or physics". The other laureate was Carla Saleh. The ceremony took place at the Hotel Tubeuf and was chaired by Jacqueline Sanson (director of BNF) and Philippe Sansonetti (member of the Académie des sciences).
31-05-2013 The new LED system is operational. This type of light source is very efficient in exciting fluorescent proteins and allows the monitoring IFT on a relatively simple epifluorescence microscope.
