Permanent scientist(s):

Maria-Elena Torres-Padilla: Mexican
metp@igbmc.fr
Group leader.
Maria-Elena did her undergraduate studies at the Faculty of Sciences of the UNAM, Mexico and obtained her Ph.D at the Institut Pasteur in Paris in 2002. She was a postdoctoral fellow at The Gurdon Institute, University of Cambridge, UK between 2002 and 2006. She then worked as scientist with Laszlo Tora until 2008.


Ana Boškovic: Croatian
ana.boskovic@igbmc.fr
Ph. D student.
Ana did her undergraduate studies at the Faculty of Biology of the University of Zagreb on the functional characterisation of BY-kinases.
Ana joined the lab in the fall 2010 and is supported by the FP7-ITN Nucleosome 4D (http://www.nucleosome4d.net/)
Research interest: Chromatin domains and histone variants in early mouse development.


Adam Burton: British
aburton@igbmc.fr
Post doctoral fellow.
Adam did his undergraduate studies at the University of Sheffield in Biochemistry. He obtained his Ph.D in 2010 at the MRC LMCB, University College London on the signalling role of IP6 kinases. He joined the lab in May 2010.
Research interest: Epigenetic basis of cell fate in the early embryo.



André Eid: Lebanese
eid@igbmc.fr
Ph.D student
André did his undergraduate studies in the University of Aix-Marseille and the University of Strasbourg. He obtained his Master 1 degree in the group of Oliver Pourquié at the IGBMC on the analysis of gene expression during somite formation. Andre joined the lab in September 2011 for his Master 2 and started his Ph.D in october 2012. Andre holds a scholarship from the Ministry for Research, Education and Technology.
Research interest: Epigenetic basis of cell fate and potency.



Joanna Jachowicz: Polish
jachowic@igbmc.fr
Ph.D student.
Joanna did her undergraduate studies in the Department of Embryology, Warsaw University. She holds a major degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Molecular Biology. Joanna did her experimental Master’s work with Ewa Borsuk in the Faculty of Biology of Warsaw University, where she studied the presence and function of Cdc6 in meiotic maturation in mouse oocytes. She joined the lab in october 2012.
Research interest: Mechanisms and dynamics of heterochromatin during mouse preimplantation development.


Takashi Ishiuchi: Japanese
Takashi.Ishiuchi@igbmc.fr
Post doctoral fellow.
Takashi obtained his Ph.D in 2011 from Kyoto University working under the supervision of Masatoshi Takeichi at the Riken Center for Developmental Biology. His Ph.D studies focused on understanding the morphology and adhesion of epithelial cells and the role of Willin in establishing cell polarity.
Takashi joined the lab in April 2012 and holds a post-doctoral fellowship from HFSP and the Uehara foundation. 
Research interest: Epigenetic dynamics during mouse preimplantation development

Julien Pontabry: French
pontabry@igbmc.fr
Post doctoral fellow.
Julien did his Master in Computer Science and Imaging at the University of Strasbourg and his Ph.D in Image, Sciences and Information Technologies at the ICube laboratory, where he focused in the 3D analysis of foetal brain by constructing a probabilistic atlas based on IRM and generating 3D models. Juien joined the lab in September 2013.
Research interest: Julien is working to develop and implement methods of image analysis to understand the epigenetic mechanisms regulating early mammalian development.



Céline Ziegler-Birling: French
birling@igbmc.fr
Research Assistant
Celine assists the lab with transgenesis, genotyping, embryo manipulation, molecular biology amongst others and participates in various research projects in the lab.
