Symposium Tribute to Maxime Dahan

October 24th – 25th, 2019 / Amphithéâtre Constant Burg - Institut Curie. 12 rue Lhomond - 75005 Paris

This 2-day symposium is a tribute to the life, career and research of Maxime DAHAN, director of the physical-chemistry unit (UMR 168) of the Curie Institute between 2013 and 2018, and group leader of the “Light based observation and control of cellular organization” research group. After a brilliant academic career at L’Ecole Polytechnique and L’Ecole normale supérieure (ENS), Maxime spent 12 years in the ENS Kastler Brossel laboratory. As an attestation to his high level of scientific excellence, the CNRS awarded him a bronze medal in 2006. He then continued his research at the Janelia Farm Research Center outside Washington D.C. for two years before joining Institut Curie.

Upon joining the Institut Curie as director of the Physico-Chemistry unit in January 2013, Maxime immediately became very active in the both the broader organization of the Institut Curie and the daily research and life of the Institute. Notably, Maxime laid the groundwork for an interaction between physics and clinical practice that provided a new perspective on cancer as well as innovative treatments. Beyond being a main scientific player on the national and international level in the domain of biophysics and single molecule imaging, Maxime always pushed mentorship, collaboration and innovation as demonstrated by his dedication to teaching, his involvement in several innovative start-up companies and his leading roles in the Labex Celtisphybio, the European FETopen Magneuron project and the Q-Life Institute.

This symposium in his memory gathers several world-renowned scientists in the field of Biophysics with whom Maxime collaborated over his scientific career to talk both about their research in addition to personal stories and memories of Maxime.

CelTisPhyBio Groundbreaking Meeting

July 8th, 2019 / Amphithéâtre Constant Burg - Institut Curie. 12 rue Lhomond - 75005 Paris

Time: 9h30 – 12h30 followed by lunch in the Green Café

The LabEx Celtisphybio is organizing a half-day technology transfer meeting with short talks on different types of “technology transfer success stories” at different stages and in different realms of the technology transfer (i.e. patents, industry collaborations, start-ups). Following the talks there will be focus groups on different tech transfer related topics (why and how to patent, how to start your own business, how to initiate collaborations with the industry and how to apply for tech transfer related funding). Raphael Rodriguez (UMR3666), Franck Perez (UMR144), Mohamed El Beheiry (UMR168, Nathalie Amzallag (U932), Cecile Campagne (Curie Tech Transfer Office) and Amine Naimi (Curie Tech Transfer Office) will be speaking and running the focus group sessions.
