La Nuit Européenne des Chercheurs 2023

29 September 2023, 18 h 30 min


The University of Limoges is taking part in the European Researchers’ Night (ERN), an event initiated by the European Commission, which invites the public to share an evening with researchers in hundreds of towns and cities across Europe. The idea is to bring the profession of researcher to the attention of the general public in a convivial setting. Away from the institutional framework, in an unusual venue, scientists from all disciplines are invited to explain their activities in a fun, relaxed and attractive way… This event is an opportunity to innovate, to test new forms of exchange to create an atmosphere that encourages moments of sharing with the general public.

The next European Researchers’ Night will be held on Friday 29 September 2023 from 6.30pm at the Faculté de Droit et des Sciences Economiques, 5 rue Félix Eboué in Limoges.

Scientists from all disciplines at the University of Limoges invite you to experience the future during the European Researchers’ Night. Come and discover their activities in a fun, relaxed and attractive way on the theme: NoS FuturS. Let yourself be surprised

Free registration before 26 September



Meet 2 of our researchers:


Because the best listening is done in the dark, we invite you to immerse yourself blindly in the research work of a researcher and let yourself be surprised by his story punctuated by sounds, noises… Lectures in the dark to see more clearly.
Hosted by Beaub FM
Duration: 20mn per session
Room 303, 3rd floor
In 2012, some B-Ly soldiers (or B lymphocytes) were spotted without their weapon at the heart of the battlefield, the immune system. In other words, they had their bows at the ready, but no arrows, and therefore no antibodies to brandish in the fight against microbes. That’s a bit suicidal, don’t you think?  

What is the role of these soldiers? Are they working for peace or are they mercenaries destroying the balance of our bodies? Are they involved in the development of diseases such as blood cancers?

Come and spy on them with me so you can hide them! 

Lecturer: Kenza GUIYEDI – Inserm PhD student in Biology and Health (2nd year) – CRIBL Lab – Lymphomagenetic Mechanisms Axis (Team 2MB2C)  

A researcher, a presenter, a wheel, sometimes unexpected questions drawn at random, to discover the job of a researcher.

Milène Parquet is a doctoral student at the Centre for Biology and Health Research (CRIBL Laboratory).
Her research focuses on a DNA mechanism known as Sµ-3’RRrec, which is involved in B lymphocytes. These are immune system cells that produce our antibodies and belong to the white blood cells. She is studying this mechanism within these cells in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. This is a blood cancer defined by the accumulation of abnormal B lymphocytes that take the place of other cell types, such as red blood cells, which are necessary for the body to function properly.
