Scientific summary

My research has shown that invadosms have two seemingly antagonistic functions: that of adhesion and protrusion orthogonal to the extracellular matrix which is dependent on the polymerization of actin (acto-adhesive function) and that of degradation of the extracellular matrix. Today, I would like to continue to identify the regulators of this coupling, the sensors, the signaling pathways and the effectors involved in the coordination of these two functions. I propose to focus on the kinases of the SRC family in this process which are essential elements for invadosomes and which present a great functional pleitropy that can regulate multiple functions in parallel. The invadosome also seems to me to be a very interesting minimal model to better understand the molecular principles of the decision-making of a signaling element that leads to the activation/inhibition of different cellular structures. My research project is based on the coexistence of 4 scientific axes and will require new specific technological developments in microscopy and optogenetics, in particular.
