Our team is interested in understanding the mechanisms that confer proper spatial orientation of some key processes during the nervous system development. We more recently extended our focus to the impact of such mechanisms in the context of cancers that emerge during embryogenesis. We are mainly working on neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer that arises from a transitory embryonic cell population, neural crest cells. We set up an innovative in vivo model based on the avian embryo that allowed to uncover key early embryonic metastatic processes. Postdoctoral researcher will have to provide a molecular and functional picture of these secondary dissemination pathways, involving major embryonic vessels and peripheral nerves.

Work Context

The NeuroMyoGene Institute is located on Rockefeller campus in Lyon, and is composed of 16 teams with around 200 people. The INMG goal is to unravel fundamental aspects of the cell biology of the muscle and nervous system from development to aging under normal and pathological conditions.
