    Antarctica's biggest recorded heatwave fully deciphered
    Thanks to the collaboration of an international team of 54 scientists from 14 countries, led by the Université Grenoble Alpes, the exceptional heat event of March 15-19, 2022, has been fully documented. An exhaustive description of this record-breaking warmth, which resulted in temperature anomalies of unprecedented magnitude in East Antarctica (+30-40°C), is the subject of two companion articles just published in the American Meteorological Society’s Journal of Climate on January 9, 2024.

    Treatment of aggressive breast cancer: discovery of a new protein involved in the development of metastases
    A protein found abundantly in breast cancers that are refractory to conventional treatments is thought to cause the development of metastasis. Targeting it would prevent metastatic spread and therefore increase patients survival. These are the findings of a study conducted by a French-American team and led by a biologist at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences, Grenoble (IAB - CNRS/Inserm/UGA). The study, the results of which appear on 31st January in Cell Discovery, aims to better understand the mechanisms at play in the development of primary tumours in aggressive breast cancers into metastases.
