January 2017: Welcome Thomas Cloatre!

Thomas is a recently graduated Master2 in biotechnology and will become our research assistant to work on functional genomics of FMD susceptibility genes through the ERC-funded ROSALIND projet. He has experience with cell biology and is excited to lear functional genomics techniques with us. He will start on March and we are all looking forward to welcoming him! 


ERC grant is mentioned in a News Magazine for European Life Sciences





Scientific Sessions AHA 2016

This autumn, Nabila Bouatia-Naji and Mengyao Yu attended this huge and exciting meeting in New Orleans. We enjoyed our time during the Functional Genomics and Translational Biology (FGTB) activities, especially gathering with the early career committee members where Nabila is a vice-chair. 



November 2016: Congratulations to Mengyao! AHA Travel Award

During our participation, Mengyao was awarded the American Heart Association FGTB Council International Travel Award. Here she is receiving her commemorative certificate from Svati Shah, FGTB Chair 2016. 



 We had a lot of fun, we celebrated Mengyao's price with her first American burger and lobster and visited the Louis Armstrong Park in a November sunny day! 




July 2016: Romuald's PhD defense day

June 2016: "Grandes Avancées en Biologie 2016, Institut De France"



Nabila, Siham, Siying, Mengyao, June and Waed 21st June 2016

We did some scientific tourism in front of the Instute de France, Pont des Arts, Paris.

We then enjoyed fantastic conferences on cytoskeleton kinetic assembly, new immunity mechanism
of transfer of antiviral particules in HIV, microbiota role in food behavior, neurological control of false
souvenirs in mouse model, a nano crossbow defense system in bacteria and molecular evidence
for cocktail effect on endocrine disruptors. Great program, great venue!

International students and postdocs enjoyed half program delivered in English!


June 2016: Welcome Siying Huang!

Siying is our new postdoc. After a PhD on environmental sciences at University of Michigan and a first postdoc on genetic epidemiology in Canadian Families in Toronto, Siying will work on the genetics and epidemiology of FMD with us. She is intrigued by the several mysteries of this vascular disease and also French language, and food.


April 2016: Young Investigator Award to Nabila for FMD genetics study

13th International Congress of Human Genetics 2-4 April 2016, Kyoto, Japan
