Pauline Spéder: Shapely changes: dynamics of the neural stem cell niche in drosophila

Ringvorlesung "Pioneers in Cell Dynamics and Imaging"

Mit Pauline Spéder, Institut Pasteur, Paris/France

Gastgeber: Women in Science, Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence

Born in France, Pauline Speder got her PhD degree at the Institut de Biologie Valrose, under the supervision of Dr. Stéphane Noselli where she investigated the establishement of the left-right axis in Drosophila. She then moved on to take up a post-doctoral position in Cambridge. During her Postdoctoral research, she worked at the Gurdon Institute, in the laboratory of Prof. Andrea Brand, where she studied the nutritional regulation of neural stem cell behaviour in Drosophila. Later, she went back to France to start her own group in the Institut Pasteur. Her lab focuses on understanding how the neural stem cells and their cellular microenvironment (especially the niche cells) are able to detect and integrate different types of environnmental stimuli. The lab is currently investigating the impact of environmental changes on brain function using Drosophila post-embryonic brain that parallels the organisation of the vertebrate neural stem cell niche. More specifically, her interest lies in deciphering the dynamic changes and adaptation of three cellular populations: neural stem cells, glial niches and blood-brain barrier. The lab uses state-of-the-art transcriptional profiling and imaging to unravel the underlying mechansims of this adaptation which would lead to a better picture of cellular interactions and dynamics in the brain under stress.

International führende Wissenschaftler – Pioniere der Zelldynamik und Bildgebung – stellen ihre jüngsten Erkenntnisse aus Grundlagenforschung und Klinik vor. Die Vorträge beginnen um 17.30 Uhr. Ab 17.00 Uhr besteht Gelegenheit, bei kostenlosen Snacks und Getränken Kollegen zu treffen und sich interdisziplinär auszutauschen. Die Vortragssprache ist Englisch.

Die Ringvorlesung ist ein Kooperationsprojekt des Exzellenzclusters "Cells in Motion" (CiM) und der Sonderforschungsbereiche SFB 629 "Molekulare Zelldynamik", SFB 656 "Molekulare kardiovaskuläre Bildgebung", SFB 1009 "Breaking Barriers", SFB/Transregio 58 "Furcht, Angst, Angsterkrankungen" und SFB/Transregio 128 "Multiple Sklerose".
