The Turing Centre for Living Systems (CENTURI) is an interdisciplinary centre located in Marseille (France).
CENTURI aims at developing an integrated interdisciplinary community, to decipher the complexity of biological systems through the understanding of how biological function emerges from the organization and dynamics of living systems.
The project federates 20 teaching and research institutes in biology, physics, mathematics, computer science, engineering and focuses on Research, Education and Engineering, 3 missions that hold interdisciplinary as their core principle.
The research and training programmes implemented under the auspices of CENTURI will foster new collaborations, will transform practices, will attract new talents and thereby contribute to making the Luminy campus a leading site for the interdisciplinary study of biological systems.
Tâm Mignot has given an interview for the CNRS Journal about MiSiC, the first tool capable of automatically analyzing images of bacterial biofilms found in our mouths, in hospitals or in the soil.
The CENTURI education program invited PhD students and Postdoc fellows to take part in a retreat to discuss about their works! The participants have been invited to stay at the Domaine de Mousquety, a magnificent 22-hectare park located on the banks of the Sorgue River.
Entitled “Nucleation landscape of biomolecular condensates”, this article in Nature is the result of a collaboration between Princeton University, CNRS and Aix Marseille University. The article is signed by 1 of our CENTURI PI: Pierre Ronceray
The CENTURI Tech Transfer took place on September 16, 2021 on the Luminy campus. It gathered 40 participants at the Hexagon auditorium.
It was a great opportunity for engineers to present their work and their skills as well as start new collaborations with other members of the CENTURI community.
A new article entitled BCL-XL blockage in TNBC models confers vulnerability to inhibition of specific cell cycle regulators has recently been published in Theranostics.
The CENTURI Scientific Day took place on July 2nd, 2021 on the Luminy campus. It gathered 50 participants at the Hexagon auditorium and 30 via Zoom. CENTURI members have been able to share their research and propose new collaborations on a wide range of topics. Gathering the CENTURI community has been very enriching.
Mar Benavides has been awarded the 2021 CNRS Bronze medal.
The bronze medal rewards the first works of researchers specialized in their field. This distinction represents an encouragement from the CNRS to pursue well-initiated and already fruitful research.
