Focus research 2022 DynAct team
Advances in cytotoxic T lymphocyte function IOver the past year, the DynAct team’s research has progressed along three main lines:
- In collaboration with the ATTACK consortium funded by the prestigious European ERC Synergy Grant, the team has helped characterize the lytic compartment of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL). Read article
- The team has shed new light on the molecular mechanisms by which aggressive tumors such as melanoma resist CTL attack at the lytic synapse. Read the article
- In collaboration with Dr. Sylvain Cussat-Blanc (Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse – IRIT), the team has developed a new approach to instance segmentation in microscopy that takes advantage of the highly innovative application called Cartesian Genetic Programming (CGP) of biological images. A patent application has been filed for this program and an article has been submitted for publication (K. Cortacero et al, under revision).
