Congratulations to Loïc Binan, named star student-researcher of December for an article in Nature Communications

Loïc Binan

Congratulations to Loïc Binan, who was named Étudiant-étoile des Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé for the month of December for his work on the development of a new single-cell tagging of live cells, work that was recently published in Nature Communications.  This technique, named CLaP, uses a laser to tag single living cells, thereby allowing researchers to follow specific cells during many days.  This technique has applications in research on cancer, cell therapy and neurobiology.
