French summer of HPC : Transport of lipids, molecular mechanisms and their role in pathogenesis

Transport mechanisms guarantee a precise distribution of lipids at all points of the cell. Team of Institut de Pharmacologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire (CNRS & Université Côte d’Azur) is decrypting the operating mode of so-called lipid transfer proteins at the heart of these allocation processes. This can be used to understand the various cellular functions, as well as the molecular origins of...

Simulation of the 20 May 2012 earthquake in Northen Italy (c) IMAGINE_IT

Numerical simulation is a valuable tool for precisely imaging the internal geological structure of the planet and thus better understanding all the processes at work during major seismic events, with the target of determining operational scenarios for support of public authorities.
