Scientific summary

The UMR_S1113 is composed of 3 teams.

> Team 1 (Leader JN Freund): Intestinal identity: from stem cells to pathology.

> Team 2 (Leader C Gaiddon): Molecular mechanism of the stress response and pathologies.

> Team 3 (Leader T Massfelder): Cell signaling and communicaiton in kidney and prostate cancer.


Team 1.

Our work explores the molecular mechanisms involved in embryonic development and tissue homeostasis, and their alteration in pathologies.

We focus on cancer and inflammatory diseases in the digestive tract and hematopoietic system.

Studies concentrate on the homeotic transcription factor CDX2 and its downstream targets and partners such as the atypical cadherin MUCDHL/CDHR5 and the DNA repair complex KU70/80.
