For this 20th edition of the Tetrahedron Symposium held in Thaïland, he had the opportunity to present his work in a talk entitled "Reprogramming the reactivity of iron in cancer cells" at Mahidol University in Bangkok. This was also the chance for him to explore future research collaborations between Mahidol University and PSL University (Paris Sciences et Lettres).
Raphaël Rodriguez, CNRS research director, joined the Institut Curie in 2015 to add a biological approach to his research. "As a chemist, I have a great deal to learn from biologists and physicians at Institut Curie," explains the head of the Chemistry and Biology of Cancer team (Institut Curie/CNRS/Inserm/PS)." He led his research on small molecules that target lyosomal iron and regulation of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition by iron in the chromatin.
