"Understanding genome instability from S-phase to mitosis"

contact : Eric JULIEN (Inserm/CNRS)

Replication stress resulting from slowing or stalling of DNA replication forks is a major driver of genome instability during cancer initiation and progression. DNA replication can be challenged as a consequence of oncogene activation or by agents that interfere with DNA synthesis, such as the ones used in chemotherapy. To accomplish genome duplication and prevent chromosomal instability, cells have evolved mechanisms that protect, stabilize and/or restart replication forks while delaying cell cycle progression, which avoids entering mitosis with under-replicated DNA. Over the last years, however, work from several laboratories including ours has shown that cells can progress into mitosis with under-replicated DNA. This led to the identification of mechanisms, mediated by the Fanconi anemia (FA) and Homologous Recombination (HR) repair pathways, that promote post-replication repair and rescue of under-replicated DNA in mitosis, allowing cells to divide and continue proliferating. I will discuss how these findings have advanced our understanding of the link between replication stress and genome instability; I will present a molecular pathway that connects mitochondrial stress and functions of FA proteins in genome maintenance; finally, I will show that mechanisms involved in mitotic rescue of under-replicated DNA may represent promising targets to selectively kill cancer cells that sustain intrinsically high levels of replication stress.

"Targeting RAS signaling in lung cancer"

contact : Antonio Maraver (Inserm) -ATTENTION Séminaire décalé au vendredi 02 Juin à 14h

KRAS oncogenes have been identified in a quarter of all human lung tumors. Recently, several inhibitors were developed that target specific mutant KRAS isoforms and two of them, directed against the KRAS G12C oncoprotein, have just been approved. However, most patients develop resistance against these inhibitors and no actual survival benefits have been observed in clinical trials. Thus, it is urgently required to identify novel therapeutic options applicable to most if not all patients with KRAS-mutant tumors. I will discuss what we have learned from genetically engineered mouse models about the development of resistance to KRAS inhibition. Moreover, I will present novel insights into the mechanisms of KRAS signaling in lung cancer and how a better understanding of KRAS signaling may help to overcome resistance to targeting either KRAS itself or its MAPK effector pathway.

Decipher Tissue Complexity with Spatial Genomics: Single Cell Spatially Resolved Transcriptomic Imaging with MERSCOPE Powered by MERFISH

contact : Laurent Le Cam (Inserm)

Biological systems are composed of numerous cell types, intricately organized to form functional tissues and organs. While recent advancements in genomics technologies have made it possible to characterize cell types through careful analysis of the transcriptome, they are unable to resolve how gene expression and cell types are spatially arranged. In this presentation, we introduce you to Vizgen’s all-in-one in situ genomics platform MERSCOPE, which enables the direct profiling of the spatial organization of intact tissue with genomic scale
throughput. The instrument, the MERFISH chemistry and use cases will be presented as well.

Florent Ginhoux is graduated in Biochemistry from the University Pierre et Marie CURIE (UPMC), Paris VI, obtained a Masters degree in Immunology from the Pasteur Institute in 2000 and his PhD in 2004 from UPMC, Paris VI. As a postdoctoral fellow, he joined the Laboratory of Miriam Merad in the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM), New York, where he studied the ontogeny and the homeostasis of cutaneous dendritic cell populations, with a strong focus on Langerhans cells and Microglia. In 2008, he became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Gene and Cell Medicine, MSSM and member of the Immunology Institute of MSSM. He joined the Singapore Immunology Network (SIgN), A*STAR in May 2009 as a Junior Principal Investigator and became Senior Principal Investigator in 2014. He joined the EMBO Young Investigator (YIP) program in 2013 and is a Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher since 2016. He is also an Adjunct Visiting Associate Professor in the Shanghai Immunology Institute, Jiao Tong University, in Shanghai, China since 2015 and Adjunct Associate Professor in the Translational Immunology Institute, SingHealth and Duke NUS, Singapore since 2016. He is now a Laboratory Director in Gustave Roussy focusing on pediatric cancers and the role of myeloid cells in tumor progression and became an EMBO member in 2022.
