PhD defence of Mrs Le Roux-Bourdieux
This April 24, Mrs Morgan Le Roux-Bourdieu defended with success her PhD thesis on Chemical And Genetic Perturbations Of Centrosomes And Their Consequences On The Mitotic Spindle Functions.
Her thesis was conducted under the direction of Prof. Patrick Meraldi from the Faculty of Medicine and Prof. Paul Guichard from the Faculty of Science.
Centrosomes enable the proper alignment of chromosomes and their correct dissociation during cell division. Any perturbation of this process might have severe consequences, sometimes leading to cancers. During her PhD thesis, Mrs Morgan Le Roux-Bourdieu investigated the role of centrosome age on mitosis and the mechanism of action of a new clinically relevant drug combination developed as a therapeutic strategy for renal carcinoma.
