Congratulations to both Aysu and Pauline for being awarded an Aspirant PhD Fellowship from the FNRS!
Congratulations to Pauline who brilliantly passed her Master thesis defense! A big thank you for your terrific work in the group. And now, en route for the PhD!
Pleased to share our new preprint, where we characterise the target antigen of 4C4, a mAb widely used by the zebrafish community to label microglia and macrophages!
Check it out on bioRxiv here.
Congratulations to Elodie on defending her PhD thesis with flying colors! And soon to come: the results of your hard work getting accepted for publication!
"The Chemerin System in Zebrafish and its Roles in Carcinogenesis"
Congratulations to Giuliano on becoming a PhD holder, the first one of the lab! It has been an amazing trip and you crossed the finish line like a champion!
"Cellular Dynamics and Molecular Regulation of Microglia Development: Insights from the Zebrafish Model"
Our lab is awarded a Grant from the Fondation Recherche Alzheimer to investigate the functions of a new candidate gene associated with a pathological microglial signature in Alzheimer’s disease.
We have a fully funded three-year postdoc position available to work on this exciting project!
Our lab is delighted to be a part of this amazing story led by our collaborators Martin Guilliams and Charlotte Scott and published in Cell ! Check the single-cell analysis across 7 species, including zebrafish, which identified a conserved core gene expression signature of Kuppfer cells, the hepatic macrophages!
Check it out here.
Our latest study, uncovering the colony-stimulating factor 1 receptor b (csf1rb) paralog as a unique regulator of adult microglia development in zebrafish is published at Development !

Call for Postdoc!
We are seeking a postdoc to join our team and work on the roles of microglia in brain repair and regeneration.
The position is available immediately for three years (subjected to satisfactory review every year).
Check the Opportunities page for more info.
Our lab is awarded an ARC consolidator grant to investigate "Immune-mediated mechanisms driving brain repair and regeneration"!
Stay tuned as one postdoc position will soon be available !
Our review with Julien Bertrand on yolk sac hematopoiesis is out in Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences !
Congratulations to Alice for being awarded an Aspirant PhD Fellowship from the FNRS!
Thrilled that our newest work, led by Giuliano and in collaboration with the team of Julien Bertrand, is published in Journal of Leukocyte Biology !
Congratulations to Mireia for being awarded a Postdoctoral Researcher grant from the FNRS!
Our collaborative work with the group of Tjakko van Ham is out at eLife! New insights into the role of csf1r during macrophage development and into metaphocytes, a recently discovered population of macrophage-like cells. Congratulations to all involved!
The first publication of our lab is finally published in Cell Reports ! Congratulations to Giuliano and all authors for the great work delineating microglia ontogeny during zebrafish development!
Congratulations to Magali for being awarded a PhD Fellowship from the Belgian Kid's Fund!
Congratulations to Giuliano for being awarded an Aspirant PhD Fellowship from the FNRS!
