New 5-year funding from the Transdiscipline Program of the Research Council of Norway to investigate the impact of adolescence sleep deprivation on adult metabolic health (SmartSense)

Obesity and bad sleep habits among teenagers are two rising health concerns that are intertwined. We have secured a 5-year funding to study how sleep deprivation during adolescence affects fat tissue development and the emergence of metabolic disorders later in life. To do this, we propose SmartSense, a new project resulting from the convergence of…

Our latest paper on polymer modeling of chromatin at the nuclear lamina is out!

Check out Annaël Brunet's latest paper from our lab, on the biophysical properties of a chromatin polymer interacting with a surface representing the nuclear lamina. The work results from a collaboration with Prof. Nicolas Destainville, Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France. Physical constraints in polymer modeling of chromatin associations with the nuclear periphery at kilobase scale…
