IT seminar – Multidisciplinary approach to treat nicotine dependence. Is it enough?
Speaker: Mariana Gonzalez Medina Abstract:

Tobacco use causes 8 million deaths every year. Nicotine is distilled from tobacco smoke and binds to nicotinic receptors (nAChRs), this promotes the release of dopamine and stimulates the brain’s reward system causing addiction.

nAChRs with a4ß2a5 subunits are associated to smoking addiction due to a single-nucleotide polymorphism on the a5 subunit which generates a loss of function. It is expected that activating a4ß2a5 could be a treatment for smoking dependence.

Studying a4ß2a5 is a complex endeavor, since there are no ligands or crystallographic structures reported. This project integrates biochemical, electrophysiological and structural data with in silico modeling, to design a4ß2a5 activators.

IT seminar – Cancer-associated fibroblasts contractility and ECM organization in tumor resistance to chemoradiotherapy
Speaker: Olivier Zajac Abstract:

Patients with locally advanced rectal cancer are treated with preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) followed by surgery. About 40% of patients show weak or no response to CRT. If identified early, these CRT-refractive patients could benefit from immediate surgical treatment. Thus, it is crucial to identify markers that could predict treatment response. We propose a multi-disciplinary approach that combines cancer cell biology, biophysics, and bioinformatics using patients’ material aiming to determine if physical properties of tumor microenvironnment can induce tumor resistance.

IT seminar – Senescence and cancer: going hand in hand?
Speaker: Margaux Bieuville Abstract:

When my grandmother asked me to tell her about my PhD, I was lost in translation. Then I started like that:

Cells divide. Over divisions, cells get damaged. Damaged cells can lead to cancer. But damaged cells can also just stop dividing and it’s called cellular senescence. My project is about how our conceptions about the relationship between cellular senescence and cancers led to puzzling observations in populations. I’m investigating whether cellular senescence evolved as a defense mechanism against cancer. Because I like evolution: it picks my brains!

Sciences in Context: Agency and responsibility in humans and intelligent machines

Lecture by Patrick Haggard,

Patrick Haggard has a background in experimental psychology and cognitive neurophysiology.  He leads an "Action and Body" research group at UCL. He holds the 2020 Jean D'Alembert Paris-Saclay – Paris IAS research Chair. His work on human voluntary action and sense of agency has had wide impact within psychology, neuroscience and philosophy. 


Sciences in Context is a series of public lectures, organized by Muriel Mambrini and Pascal Kolbe, in collaboration with the Institut d'études avancées de Paris, aimed at bringing new concepts and perspectives from the frontiers of the social sciences to the CRI community and beyond. The topics of the conference will be discussed at a public session of the Practical Philosophy Club on the Friday before each conference, in order to encourage discussion with the guest speaker.


People generally know what they are doing, and what they have done.  The healthy adult human brain contains specific circuits that give us a sense of agency over our actions, and thus over the outcomes of our actions in the external world.  My talk will show that the cognitive processes implemented by these brain circuits underlie human development of technology, and key aspects of human culture, such as legal and moral responsibility for action.  The arrival of intelligent machines will require us to interact with artificial agents who have cognitive and behavioural capacities resembling our own, but who lack our encultured concepts of agency and responsibility.  All human societies appear to have some form of responsibility for action.  How AI might put pressure on this underpinning feature of human society will be discussed.

Network Seminar - J-P Cointet: The structure of the French media space and the Yellow vest movement

This network seminar will be given by Jean-philippe Cointet from Sciences Po Media Lab!

Title: The structure of the French media space and the Yellow vest movement

Abstract: I will start by outlining the main results of the structural description of the French media sphere we are working on at médialab. We are collecting data at two distinct levels of the media system: the daily publication of articles by the 400 main news outlets, and the interactions that these articles incite (citations to media sources) on Twitter. The morphology of the media space that is emerging is characterized by a very high concentration of authority (particularly visible in the distribution of hypertext links) and a rather limited ideological polarization. This first result is in stark contrast with the structure of the media space as observed in the United States. We will finally consider how this organization is being challenged at another layer of the public space: conversations on Facebook. We will show, in particular, how Yellow Vests group pages redistribute order between the different media.

Bio: Jean-Philippe Cointet is working at the Sciences Po médialab, where he designs innovative computational sociology methods. He is specialized in text analysis, and is working on various kinds of corpora and sources questioning their socio-political dynamics. His research areas are diverse, ranging from social media analysis (Facebook public posts and comments) to science of science (data turn in oncology)or political processes mapping (political discourses, international negotiations) and frame analysis (press coverage of migration processes). He also participates in developing the CorText platform. He holds a PhD in Complex Systems and was trained as an engineer at Ecole Polytechnique. He is also affiliated with the research center INCITE, from Columbia University.

Rébellion contre une vieillesse aliénée - Plus de temps de vie c’est bien, plus vivant c’est encore mieux.

Accueil à partir de 18h30

Le health-Lab du CRI invite les transmetteurs le temps d'une soirée.

Plus de temps de vie c’est bien, plus vivant c’est encore mieux

"Dans le vieillissement, peu à peu, insidieusement des pertes s’installent, des cellules s’étiolent où meurent de plus en plus nombreuses et l’on constate des pertes successives des centres nerveux ou des périphéries se traduisant par des atteintes successives : audition, vision, motricité ou même idéation. Ces pertes entraînent la libération des fonctions mécaniques inhérentes à notre statut d’Homme édifiées depuis l’enfance jusqu’au grand âge, des fonctions en quelque sorte archaïques. C’est ainsi que les anciens parlant des grands vieillards les décrivaient comme “... étant retombés en enfance " mais ce n’est pas l’enfance qui se manifeste ce sont les fonctions archaïques qui s’expriment et entraîne la recherche d’affection, de protection, une incompréhension du temps,... Cela se présente comme l’ouverture de nouvelles capacités, des performances du cerveau ancien, celui d’avant la pleine conscience et la responsabilité." Dr Xavier Emmanuelli

L’association les Transmetteurs réfléchit et agit en formant différemment les professionnels de l’accompagnement à domicile. Elle expérimente depuis trois ans une formation médico-psycho-sociale axée sur le développement des compétences relationnelles, émotionnelles. L’objectif de ce projet : Inscrire le vieillissement dans une dynamique et un sens plus profond de l’existence. Nous vous invitons à partager ces réflexions avec :

Xavier Emmanuelli – Co-fondateur de Médecin sans Frontières, créateur du Samu social et du Samu social international, fondateur et président de l’association les Transmetteurs Boris Cyrulnik – Neuro-psychiatre, spécialiste de la résilience, et entre autres la résilience durant la vieillesse Marie-Françoise Fuchs – Médecin et psychanalyste militante pour vieillissement investi, fondatrice en 2008 de l’association Old’Up « Plus si jeune, mais pas si vieux », agissant pour donner du sens, de l'utilité et de la qualité à l'allongement de la vie.

Christine Mulard, psychothérapeute, nous invitera ensuite à expérimenter une pratique de la qualité de présence, essentielle dans la formation des professionnels de l’accompagnement des personnes.

Acceuil des participants : à partir de 18h30 Début de la conférence: 19h Lieu: CRI 8 bis rue Charles V 75004, Anmphitheatre niveau -1.

Climate Narrative Emergency: Workshop Series
The Climate Narrative Emergency is a workshop series to generate new, empowering, narratives for our climate future in the 2020s.

Our current set of climate narratives - “only 10 more years”, “the 2010s was a failed decade”, “the house is on fire” ; culminating with the Great Australian Firestorm are driving increasing levels of anxiety, helplessness and shutdown.

These narratives - which are used by mainstream media and civil society - are principally derived from a 20th century industrial age paradigm led by the United Nations and other leading international bodies. People are still looking to power elites to lead and deliver the necessary change and feel increasingly helpless and locked into a scenario of doom.

The workshop series proposed in this note combines dialogue, reading, listening and writing exercises to derive fresh climate narratives that:

Provide a voice to participants for re-framing the current climate narratives. Develop an innovative practice for reshaping narratives for change grounded in individual and collective agency. Co-produce a compendium of written expression based on participants sensemaking and emotional response to the current context.

Each workshop will have a sharing circle, a reading out loud, and writing component.

How bird biomechanics can help to produce more efficient vocal prosthetics ?

Pauline Provini - CRI Research

We share remarkable similarities with birds. Among them, bipedalism and complex language are two traits often seen as human specificities, yet also present in birds. In my project, I want to focus on birdsong to build a new generation of vocal prostheses. Patients suffering from an advanced stage of laryngeal cancer often have to undergo a total surgical removal of the larynx, which is the human voice source. Our voice is used to communicate but also defines our identity. Thus, a voice alteration or a complete speech loss can cause emotional and social issues. To recover the ability to speak, a prosthesis, mimicking the vocal folds, is usually placed between the trachea and the oesophagus. The exhaled air crosses a vibrating element and produces a substitute voice. Unfortunately, the created voice is of poor quality: it is weak, with a low fundamental frequency. In addition, the limited lifetime of the devices, due to biofilm coming from mucus/material interactions, forces a frequent device replacement. To date, there is no voice prosthesis lasting more than 3 months and able to reconstruct a natural-sounding human voice. In this context, birds should attract attention. First, their vocal repertoire is incredibly diverse, with pitch spanning from 100 to 12 000 Hz, compared to only 85 to 255 Hz in human speech. Moreover, the unique structure of their vocal organ, the syrinx, allows the production of sounds from the vibration of membranes, located in the wall of the syrinx. Thus, unlike in mammals, the air is flowing through the vocal tract without crossing any structures. The accurate biological and physical experimental data I want to gather will feed a predictive aero-acoustic model to understand cause-effect relationships between shape, motions, and produced sounds in birds. It will provide the necessary elements to design and prototype more durable and efficient prostheses, which will produce voices that will sound more humane.

Waking up to your WHY: Enroll now for a 2-month course to find and act your purpose
Waking up to your Why An open course in sustainable leadership

Are you currently chasing things that you do not actually care about?

What does your ideal life look like?

How much time do you currently spend on making your life as close to your ideal life? (And why not make it a regular hobby?)

Most of us live our lives by accident. Fulfillment comes when we live our lives on purpose. Knowing your WHY provides a filter through which you can make decisions, every day, to act with purpose. - Simon Sinek

This 2-month course gives you the tools to discover and play with your why and then use this motivational power to become the person you want to be in this world.

Each Monday evening from 18h30 to 22:00 ten participants meet to go through a series of 8 diverse & engaging workshops.

If you want to take responsibility for how you live your life, you will need to commit:

If you start this workshop we will ask you to 'pay' a certain amount in advance (~100€, depending on your income level, enough that it hurts a little bit). If you complete the workshop series (or you drop out with a justified reason) you can take back as much of that money as you want. On our side we commit to making this workshop as engaging and transformative for YOU as possible and do our best to accompany your development personally.

I’m looking forward to engage in this together with you,

Pascal, Co-founder of the Ikigai Lab (Inspired by CRI)

Deep learning driven model discovery in biology and physics

Gert-Jan Both - CRI

As scientific data sets become richer and increasingly complex, machine learning (ML) tools become more useful and widely applied. Discovering a mechanistic model, rather than predicting the outcome is paramount in the scientific endeavor and its lack in present day ML is limiting further integration of ML in quantitative science. In this talk I will present our development of quantitative tools to extract human interpretable models from quantitative biological and physical data sets. The work combines the predictive power of neural networks with the interpretability of symbolic regression to develop a framework of interpretable AI and discover mechanistic models from biological and physical data.

Ikigai for medical student

un workshop en collaboration entre le Health-Lab et l'IKIGAI lab afin d'introduire la notion d'ikigai et d ereflechir à son propre Ikigai. une autre facon de prendre soin de soi pour prendre soin des autres.

À IKIGAI Lab, nous faisons des recherches et testons les pédagogies conçues pour aider les gens à prendre soin d'eux-mêmes, des autres et de la planète. L'une de ces ressources est l'outil ikigai.

生 ( I ) vivre, vivre, vivre / き (ki) / 甲斐 (gai) valeur de l'action

Ikigai est un mot japonais & un concept occidental, généralement interprété comme : source de valeur dans la vie d'une personne. La traduction française approximative signifie "la chose pour laquelle vous vivez" ou "la raison pour laquelle vous vous réveillez le matin". Il est devenu viral grâce au diagramme ci-dessous : si vous trouvez quelque chose que vous aimez, pour lequel vous êtes doué, dont le monde a besoin et pour lequel vous pouvez trouver des ressources, cela peut vous donner une idée de votre 'ikigai'.

Cet atelier présentera aux participants l'outil IKIGAI, accompagné d'une série d'exercices facilités pour les aider à construire et à réfléchir sur leur "ikigai".

Le nombre de places est limitée à 20 participants car c'est un atelier participatif.

Il sera en Francais avec des supports angalis ou francais.

Conférence « Numérique et patrimoine – enjeux et questionnements actuels »

Le numérique appliqué au patrimoine constitue un champ important des humanités numériques et de ce que l’on appelle désormais la « Science du patrimoine ». Il embrasse toutes les formes de patrimoine qu’elles soient, culturelles et naturelles, matérielles et immatérielles, physiques et numériques. Il associe des compétences scientifiques hétérogènes dans un dialogue qui stimule la créativité et ouvre de nouvelles perspectives pour la connaissance, la transmission et le partage des éléments patrimoniaux. Ces avancées, significatives, dans un domaine à fort impact sociétal, seront évoquées à travers la présentation des objectifs et des résultats de travaux récents ou en cours, mais aussi les défis et questionnements auxquels les chercheurs sont confrontés, qu’ils soient éthiques ou techniques, méthodologiques ou conceptuels.

L’objectif de cet événement est de créer les conditions d’un échange scientifique sur les enjeux actuels de la numérisation du patrimoine et de l’exploration des nouvelles possibilités offertes par les outils numériques en matière de production et de diffusion des connaissances.

Il rassemblera des chercheurs faisant autorité sur ces questions ainsi que des porteurs de projets actuellement financés par l’Agence nationale de la Recherche (ANR) et ses agences partenaires dans le cadre de projets nationaux et internationaux, notamment l’Appel à projets « Digital Heritage » lancé en 2017 par l’Initiative européenne de Programmation Conjointe Patrimoine Culturel et Changement Global (JPI-CH).

La conférence, organisée par l’ANR et la JPI-CH, avec le soutien de la direction générale des patrimoines du ministère de la Culture, sera principalement ouverte à un public de spécialistes des domaines concernés, en numérique et en science du patrimoine.

Journée d'étude - Quantification des discriminations en France

Organisée par Élise Marsicano (SAGE) et Antoine Mazières (Centre Marc Bloch).

Contact :

Inscription (obligatoire) & programme détaillé :

L’observation quantitative et la mesure des discriminations, notamment ethno-raciales, se heurtent à de nombreux défis. L’absence de statistiques ethniques, ou sur les origines des individus, rend la construction des catégories sous-jacentes et leur mise en lien avec d’autres critères discriminatoires (genre, classe, orientation sexuelle) plus difficile encore. L’ambition de cette journée d’étude est de rassembler des initiatives académiques, associatives, institutionnelles et entrepreneuriales étant parvenues à dépasser ces contraintes, à plus ou moins grande échelle, en empruntant notamment à des méthodes issues de la santé publique, de la démographie et des sciences sociales computationnelles.

Motivation and academic performance - Martjin Meeter VU Amsterdam


It seems a truism that to learn, you must want to learn. Motivation, and the lack thereof, has therefore been a perennial focus of both educational research and teacher gripes. However, does it merit its central place? Here, I will discuss two reasons to put it on less of a pedestal, and two reasons to care even more about it than we currently do.

About the speaker

Martijn Meeter is a professor of education sciences at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands. Since 2015 he has served as director of the LEARN research institute (until 2019) and of the teacher training program at Vrije Universiteit. His research focuses on learning, using traditional methods of education research as well as techniques drawn from cognitive neuroscience, such as computational modelling and EEG. He has also studied clinical populations and conducted surveys in several African countries.

CRI Research seminar - Kirstie Whitaker – Participatory citizen science to improve autistic people's lives
Participatory citizen science to improve autistic people's lives

by Kirstie Whitaker

Autistica and the Alan Turing Institute are working together to build a participatory, citizen science platform to gather data on how sensory processing affects autistic people’s navigation of the world. Numerous studies have confirmed that autistic people experience sensory processing differences, and that this can significantly impact their lives. One aspect which is not yet fully understood is how these differences affect the ways in which autistic people navigate different environments. In this talk, I will showcase the team's process of building a project that is participatory from the ground up. We ensure that all aspects of the project are designed and developed in collaboration with members of the autistic community through focus groups and user testing in the design phase. In close collaborations with the Open Humans community, we are developing a platform for which the software, design, process and governance documentation are all open source.

We give the individual contributors control over how their data is used on the platform. Flipping the traditional scientific study on its head, our goal is to give a voice to autistic citizen scientists and educate neurotypical people. We seek to empower everyone in supporting autistic people and their families in living long, healthy, happy lives. Combining open science, participatory design, transparent governance, inclusive community management, and collaborations across academia, industry and the third sector requires a diverse, interdisciplinary community of contributors.

CRI audience members will leave knowing how they can join the team and contribute to the project that same day, starting from information at our website and GitHub repository, or reuse the processes we've developed for their own citizen science research.


Kirstie Whitaker is a research fellow at the Alan Turing Institute (London, UK) and senior research associate in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge. Her work covers a broad range of interests and methods, but the driving principle is to improve the lives of neurodivergent people and people with mental health conditions. Dr Whitaker uses magnetic resonance imaging to study child and adolescent brain development and participatory citizen science to educate non-autistic people about how they can better support autistic friends and colleagues.

She is the lead developer of The Turing Way, an openly developed educational resource to enable more reproducible data science. Kirstie is a passionate advocate for making science "open for all" by promoting equity and inclusion for people from diverse backgrounds, and by changing the academic incentive structure to reward collaborative working.

She is the chair of the Turing Institute's Ethics Advisory Group, a Fulbright scholarship alumna and was a 2016/17 Mozilla Fellow for Science. Kirstie was named, with her collaborator Petra Vertes, as a 2016 Global Thinker by Foreign Policy magazine. You can find more information at her lab website:
