Guillaume Andrey joins GEDEV next December
As of December 1st, 2018, Guillaume Andrey will join the Departement of Genetic Medicine and Development as SNFS Assistant Professor. Guillaume did his PhD in Denis Duboule's lab at EPFL and is currently Postdoctoral fellow in Stefan Mundlos' Lab at MPI for Molecular Genetics.
Epigenetic Control of Developmental Processes
Guillaume's lab aims to understand how epigenetic information, in particular the 3D organization of human and mouse genomes instruct the development of organs and structures during embryogenesis. To map and functionally disrupt these chromatin states, they employ a variety of state-of-the-art technologies in pluripotent stem cells and in vivo during embryogenesis.
The understanding of these basic concepts is critical to unravel the molecular mechanisms that underlie pathological gene misregulation in congenital malformations and cancer as well the mechanism that enable evolutionary novelties and diversity of life.May 15, 2018
