Cytoskeleton club

Welcome on the I2BC Cytoskeleton Club webpage !
Cytoskeleton Club aims at gathering the I2BC cytoskeleton community in order to meet, present informal talks and exchange ideas and knowledge.
This is not a private club. Talks are open to everyone, so come along !
Cytoskeletal Club meets once a month, every second Tuesday morning at 11:30 am in the library of Building 34.

Next meeting : Tuesday December 11, 11:30 am, Bd 34 Library !
Alexis Gautreau
Ecole Polytechnique, Université Paris-Saclay, CNRS UMR7654, Palaiseau
Assembly of an actin polymerising machine : The WASH - Dynactin - Arp2/3 supercomplex

For upcoming meetings, please have a look at the Cytoskeleton Club calendar page here.
Rules :

  1. The speaker (PIs, Post-doc, PhD, master student, Engineers) prepares a 30 minute presentation in english. Please also include your negative, unexplained, puzzling, preliminary findings and current troubles and how you solved problems that you reported last time so that everybody can give feedback and learn from each other.
  2. Disruption of the speaker with questions/suggestions from the audience (other than PIs) is positively encouraged. PIs are only allowed to ask questions after the talk and after the first question has been asked by a student or postdoc.
  3. Take part actively : Ask when you don’t understand something. Ask if you don’t know how an experiment was done. Ask what it means. You don’t need to have a PhD to ask questions.
  4. Cytoskeleton Club is like Fight Club... please don’t talk to outsiders about unpublished results that you see at these meetings.
  5. At the end of each meeting, the next speaker will be identified.
