Bienvenue !!

We are a research team located in Grenoble, French Alpes, in the Department Signaling Through Chromatin of the Institute of Advanced Biosciences.

We aim to explore chromatin signaling, how its deregulation can lead to pathological states and could be targeted to treat human diseases.

We are always looking for talented members. Contact us!

About the team

Why translational epigenetics?

Our team explores chromatin signaling pathways and how they are deregulated in human diseases.

We are investigating fundamental aspects of chromatin biology in model organisms and nuclear signaling. Indeed, we leverage a wide range of expertise in epigenomics, molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, structural biology, and bioinformatics.

Our team benefits from the active involvement of several clinicians who participate in national and international medical networks to develop our translational research programs. This allows us to further structure translational research in epigenetics in collaboration with Grenoble Alpes University Hospital (CHUGA).

Team environment

Grenoble is an international center of excellence for R&D, recognized by Forbes as the 5th most innovative city in the world in 2013.

With 80,000 jobs in R&D (7.1% of the population, ranking n°1 in France), the science community of Grenoble offers the attractions of an exceptionally dense research plateau, together with a unique supportive atmosphere for investment and business development, within an outstanding location at the foot of the French Alps.

Grenoble hosts top class research organizations such as EMBL, CNRS, Inserm, INRIA, INRAE, CEA and IRSTEA. It benefits from an international high-tech cluster on digital and nano technologies, as well as R&D centers of multinational industrial R&D leaders (STMicroelectronics, Schneider Electric, etc).

Finally, Grenoble benefits from an outstanding quality of life, with a broad diversity of culture and sportive activities. More information on the Giant Genoble website.

Team policy

Our objective

Improve clinical care with translational research in epigenetics


Our vision

  • Combine various model organisms to reveal new epigenetic mechanisms, with potential clinical applications.
  • Discuss and collaborate.
  • Contribute to open science. Share protocols, reagents and data.
  • Promote scientific, moral and ethical consciousness with a safe, respectfull and rewarding professional environment.


Our responsibilities

  • Actively welcome new members with scientific and experimental guidance.
  • Provide for your salary/stipend, research materials, computational resources and physical workspace.
  • Create and support your attendance at scientific courses, conferences, tutorials, and workshops. Lab members generally attend at least one conference/year.
  • Provide career advice and mentoring. Support any career of your choice and help you secure your future job.
  • Provide an environment where ethical behavior is expected and where interpersonal conflicts and unethical behavior are handled in a professional manner.
  • Promote the values of Gender Equity, Diversity and Inclusion within the team’s environment.
  • Keep optimizing the team’s organization to maximize time dedicated to science while minimizing bureaucracy.
  • Provide fair authorship on publications, following the guidelines of The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (link).


Your commitments

  • Always have a professional behavior in line with the team values: respectful, responsible, inclusive and open-minded.
  • Properly document your scientific work with all experimental conditions. We expect to be able to revisit any experiment without your assistance when you will be gone.
  • Enthusiastically participate in the team life (lab meetings, journal clubs) and fulfill your lab jobs.
  • Use the team tools for scheduled meetings and reporting vacation/sick time.
  • Inform leadership if you experience any problem (working relationship, getting the resources, advice, or training you need.
  • Give credit when due. Obey intellectual property laws. Respect the confidentiality of internal and collaborators’ projects
  • Contribute to the lab’s culture of exceptional thoughtfulness and intellectual rigor so we can all cont
