The 2017 young researcher award goes to Alessandro Furlan.

by Johanna Leclercq - published on

The DYSCO team (director Majid Taki) of the PhLAM laboratory is pleased to announce that the Hauts-de-France region has awarded the young researcher award to Alessandro Furlan, a postdoctoral researcher developing his projects with Laurent Héliot and Marc Lefranc.

A trained biologist, Alessandro Furlan conducts research at the interface between physics, biology and mathematics, in synergy with the complementary expertise of PhLAM biophysics groups.

By combining experimental fluorescence microscopy approaches with theoretical modeling, his projects shed light on cellular regulation networks at two levels:
- the dynamic organization of supramolecular complexes in the regulation of transcription,
- metabolic oscillations during the circadian cycle and their control by transcription circuits.

Several partnerships and collaborations are also underway with teams from the Faculty and the University of Lille around biomedical issues.
These technological breakthrough projects are supported by the CPER Photonics 4 Society, the CEMPI laboratory of excellence, Equipex Imaginex technical resources, an industrial partnership with Nikon, and ISITE Sustain EPIC.

1-PRIMER is a call for projects aiming to highlight the research carried out in the Hauts-de-France region as factors of development of the regional territory and international influence.
The Young Researcher Award was created to support the attractiveness of doctoral training in the Hauts-de-France region and to distinguish young researchers trained in the regions whose research work contributes to the attractiveness and promotion of the image of the region.
