Controlling ion channels activity using photoactivatable toxins

Photoactivatable toxins targeting ion channels, derived from animal venoms, have the potential to control the activity of excitable cells with high spatiotemporal precision. An international consortium including researchers from the LIPhy developed a new technology to cage these peptides, enabling precise spatiotemporal control of neuronal ion channels associated with excitability. This technology opens the gate for novel opportunities in translational research and light-guided therapeutic interventions.

Relating rheology to microstructure dynamics in dense suspensions of soft particles

Dense suspensions of soft particles possess relatively complex rheological properties, such as the existence of a threshold stress to flow. A new statistical physics approach allows to obtain a tensor constitutive model from the dynamics of the soft particles of the suspension, and thus to link the rheology to the anisotropy of the microstructure.

Optimal hematocrit for proper blood flow regulation by ATP

Biochemical signaling by red blood cells (RBCs) is essential for proper regulation of blood flow, and understanding it allows the design of
therapies adapted to cardiovascular pathologies. The release of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) by RBCs is a major mechanism that has been modeled in this work, revealing the existence of an optimal hematocrit for better ATP release.

Buckling dynamics of elastic shells

The authors of these studies have modeled the buckling dynamics of elastic shells, opening the way to the controlled use of these objects to generate small-scale flows, for applications such as mixing, or propulsion and control of immersed microbots.
