Congratulations to Gaelle Legube of the LBCMCP and Filipe Pinto Teixeira, winners of the Coups d'élan pour la recherche française and the ATIP-AVENIR programme awarded by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation respectively.
The project of Gaëlle Legube, Team Leader at the LBCMCP, focuses on understanding the function of chromatin in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks.
The aim of the Coups d'élan prize is to improve the infrastructures and working conditions for life-science researchers.
The project of Filipe Pinto Teixeira, Researcher at the CNRS and recruited via the CBI 2018 call for tenders to join the CBD, uses the visual motion detection system in Drosophila to understand the construction of specific neural networks.
The ATIP-Avenir program allows researchers to set up and lead a team.
