Nabila BOUATIA-NAJI : Group leader


Mitral Valve Prolapse group 

Mengyao YU : PhD Student, Chinese Scientific Council

Sergiy KYRYACHENKO : Postdoc, ANR i-Care

Sergiy received his Ph.D. in Biology from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Ukraine. He did his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Arup Indra at Oregon State University, where he studied the role of keratinocyte-derived paracrine signaling in melanoma development. He continued his postdoctoral studies on hair follicle stem cell niche in the laboratory of Dr. David Sassoon at the Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris VI) before going the MVP group.
His laboratory skills have found an extension in hobbies like beer-brewing and bread-baking at home. In addition, Sergiy enjoys hiking in mountains and forests but he is not doing this often anymore, because he lives in the flat Paris area. 


Fibromuscular Dysplasia group 


Background. From a chemistry/biophysics background, I started to study cellular biology during my PhD. I worked on a transcription factor acting as a master regulator in an ovarian cell lineage, in the context of ovarian development and cancer. This led me to learn more about cell differentiation, genomics and the development of epigenetics, which have been my main interests ever since. I then made a post-doc about the coupling of transcription with DNA repair. My current focus is on characterizing genetic loci involved in fibromuscular dysplasia, trying to link single nucleotide variants to phenotypes.
