Collaborating with M. De Brabander (discoverer of nocodazole) sparkled my interest in MTs. At the Janssen Foundation, I have participate,d using nocodazole and taxol, investigating the assembly of the microtubule system. I also developed and promoted the colloidal gold immunostaining method. With G. Langanger, localization of myosin in stress fibers in a sarcomere-like organization. As a first step towards a reinsertion in academia, I have joined the EMBL as staff scientist (cell biology). Following Kai? recommendation, a collaboration with the groups of E. Stelzer and E. Karsenti has provided me with a unique chance to use the first high quality confocal microscopes. This work (with A. Merdes), has elucidated the cellular mechanism underlying the initial contact between a kinetochore and polar microtubules. In collaboration with Thomas Kreis, I became interested in CLIP-170, having shown its transient association with kinetochores (thesis of D. Dujardin in Paris). 1991: professorship in Paris and group leader at the Institut Jacques Monod. With 3 thesis students, we have recently contributed to a better understanding of the involvment of CLIP-170 in the dynein/dynactin pathway via its interaction with LIS1. The support of Daniel Louvard, (Curie Institute), has enabled me to develop a novel rapid 4D imaging system. Jean-Baptiste Sibarita has developed the high throughput deconvolution, so important for the success of this technique. My group at the Curie Institute has engaged in studying the mechanism of spindle positioning in polarized epithelial cells, and the role of the D/D pathway. This work will be continued in my new (and final ?) location at the University of Strasbourg. We aim at identifying the upstream elements binding D/D, LIS1 and CLIP-170 to the cellular cortex and regulating their functioning.
