Welcome to Mathilde Chouly and Anne Loap for their  summer rotations in the lab !

Our new review about the multiple roles of mechanics in cell competition is out (and free!) in Current Biology. Have a look here

Very honoured to be now part of the Cercle FSER (have a look here). Congratulation to the other laureates and big thanks for the support of the Foundation.
