in collaboration with
the Alliance Française de San Diego
with the Délégation générale de l’Alliance Française in the United States,
the National Center for Scientific Research (),
the Mission for Women in the Sciences,
and the office of the CNRS in Washington
will present a talk given by biologist May Morris.
May Morris will speak (in English ;) about advancements in the research on cancer, recent developments in therapeutics, and the future of women in sciences.
May Morris was recruited in 2000 by the CNRS as researcher in the “Therapeutic, Medicine, and Bio-engineering” section. She heads the “Molecular interactions and mechanisms regulating the cellular cycle” team, which is part of the Macromolecular Biochemistry Research Center (CRBM) in Montpellier. In 2005, after having obtained certification and licensing to direct research, May Morris put together a team to understand the molecular processes underlying cell division and to map out therapeutic and diagnostic strategies for cell growth. In 2006, she received the CNRS Bronze Medal for the quality of her work on the molecular basis of the mechanisms of the regulation of the cell cycle, and their impact in the development of new therapeutic and diagnostic measures, notably in the treatment of cancer.
The daughter of a researcher and herself the mother of a five-year-old, May Morris has been concerned with opportunities for women in research for a long time and has worked closely with CNRS’s mission for women in the sciences since 2007
The Cycle of a life
May Morris will speak at some length
on questions relating to research on cancer and the current treatments.
In so doing, she intends to guide us through the world of the cell
cycle, the “succession” of events that coordinate the growth of the
cell and its division, a biological process that is extremely complex
and whose mechanisms of molecular regulation are still poorly
represented. Breakdowns in the signaling paths lead to uncontrolled
cell growth, one of the main indications of the development of
cancer. It is thus vitally important that cellular surveillance
mechanisms be able to serve as rigorous checkpoints during cell
division in order to prevent cancer.
