Welcome to my lab website !

I am pleased to share with you my passion for cell biology, membrane trafficking (in particular clathrin-independent endocytic mechanisms) and microscopy approaches. On this website, you will find information about the lab, research activities, people working on the projects, and so much more!

I hope you will enjoy the visit! Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any question or comment.

Happy to announce that we were awarded an Incentive Grant for Scientific Research from FRS-F.N.R.S. 

A position for a postdoc in international mobility will be soon opened in the lab... Stay tuned ;-)

Welcome to our new PhD students : Emilie RIGAUX and Shiqiang XU

Emilie is a doctoral assistant and shares her time between teaching activities and research. She will work on the role of clathrin-independent endocytosis in cancer cell migration.

Shiqiang is starting a PhD thesis in joint supervision between UNamur and UCLouvain. He will work at the interface of immunology and cell biology, trying to understand how clathrin-independent endocytosis affects cancer cell immunogenicity.

We wish them a fruitful work and a lot of pleasure in these new exciting scientific adventures!

19/03/2020:      Check out our new story published in Nature Communications! We describe a novel

                           clathrin-independent endocytic modality, controlled by the BAR domain protein

                           endophilin-A3 and driven by galectin-8! The first identified cargo is CD166!
