Congratulations to Judith Miné-Hattab for her ATIP-Avenir
Congratulations to Judith Miné-Hattab for her ATIP-Avenir to investigate how chromatin organization and molecular diffusion are modified in cells under compression and how these changes affect DNA repair mechanisms. Beyond shedding light on compression in nuclear architecture and genome integrity, this project provides a quantitative tool to visualize drug functioning in vivo cells and potentially optimize drug efficiency inside nuclei of compressed cells.
Besides developing her science, Judith has also been majorly involved in a project bridging music and science. The music-IC project aims to create new musical pieces directly inspired by recent scientific discoveries and to present them to a large audience through “conference-concerts”, representing a unique opportunity to promote encounters between musicians, scientists and the general public. The project begun in 2017, coordinated by Judith Miné-Hattab (Institut Curie, UMR3664), under the artistic direction of Garance Alberman, co-funded by PSL University, the Institut Curie, the ANR and the Q-Life program. A short documentary of the concert presents snippets of the performance, interlaced with interviews from the scientists and composers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rd20IFFXiCk&t=46s
A Muse-IC concert is under organization in Boston, USA, planned in the Spring 2022.A second edition of the Muse-IC project, including 4 new compositions is starting with a final concert planned in 2023 in Paris.
