The CRI participated in the 40th edition of the Digestive Epithelial Cell Study Club (CECED) in Strasbourg in March 2023.

The Digestive Epithelial Cell Study Club (CECED) organizes a congress every year to highlight scientific advances around the digestive epithelial cell involved in many pathophysiological processes including cancer, inflammation, microbiota… This meeting brings together around 150 participants: researchers, teacher-researchers, university hospitals, doctoral or post-doctoral students.

The main goal of the annual meeting is to promote exchanges between the various French-speaking research teams involved in the field of digestive pathologies. It leaves a very important place to young researchers through the presentation and discussion of their results, which are rewarded each year with prizes for the best papers.

In addition, each year, the CECED awards the Claude Rozé prize (amount of 1500 euros) to a young doctoral student in order to facilitate his departure for a postdoctoral internship, in the field of physiopathology digestive.


This year, the CRI was represented by:

  • Alice Garrigues, in her 1st year of thesis in the PIMS team, who received one of the prizes for best oral communications for her work on adaptations during Short Hail Syndrome.

A Garrigues, S Fourati, D Atger, B De Dreuille, L Ribeiro Parenti, F Joly, M Le Gall, A Bado, J Le Beyec.
Intestinal adaptations and food intake in a mouse model of short bowel syndrome treated or not with a GLP-2 analogue.


  • Maité Casado-Bedmara, postdoctoral fellow in the team of JP Hugot, who presented her data on miRNAs in IBD.

Maité Casado-Bedmar, Maryline Roy, Jean-Pierre Hugot, Benoit Chassaing, Emilie Viennese.
