Yukin Therapeutics, a biotech start-up and offshoot of the Université Côte d'Azur's research, fights cancers

The teams of Thierry Passeron and Rachid Benhida have developed a new therapeutic strategy to boost the effectiveness of immunotherapy in fighting certain types of cancers. This major innovation is protected by two patents, owned jointly by the Université Côte d'Azur, the Inserm, the CNRS and the Nice University Hospital Center, which were recently granted by SATT Sud-Est (a Technology Transfer Accelerator in South-East France) to the young pharmaceutical start-up Yukin Therapeutics.

How water injection at depth influences faults and their potential to generate earthquakes ?

In a new study published in Science Advances, an international team of researchers (Cappa, Scuderi and co-authors) has developed unique laboratory and in-situ experiments to inform a hydromechanical model aiming at understanding how a fault responds to known fluid pressure perturbations. The results shed light on the mechanics of fault slip, seismic and aseismic. The paper is published in Science Advances(March, 2019).

Université Côte d'Azur 2020

On January 1, 2020, Université Côte d'Azur ComUE will give way to an integrated university bearing the same name. The new Université Côte d'Azur will be a full-fledged university, listed in all the international rankings. It will incorporate a number of major local players in higher education and research and increase its cooperation, through closer official ties, with other Associate Institutions, such as Public Scientific and Technical Institutions (EPST).

Université Côte d'Azur, the CNRS and the Côte d'Azur Observatory sign a commitment to keep all public communication free from gender stereotypes

Gender equality was emphasized on February 26, 2019 when the commitment was signed to keep all public communication free from gender stereotypes. Université Côte d'Azur, the Université Nice Sophia Antipolis, the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the Côte d'Azur Observatory undertake, alongside the High Council for Gender Equality, to respect this fundamental principle in communication.

Towards a better anticipation of future earthquakes ? Earthquake with magnitude 7.5 in Indonesia : an unusual and steady speed

4,1 km/s along 150 km : this is the propagation speed of the 7.5 magnitude earthquake which occurred in Indonesia in September 2018. This speed has just been determined by an international team of researchers from the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD-France), Université Côte d’Azur, University of California Los Angeles and California Institute of Technology. The results, which also shed light on the earthquake rupture path, are published on February 4th in Nature Geoscience.
