JEREMIE JOINS THE LAB!

We are excited to announce that Dr. Fages ​has joined our lab as a Postdoc!

Jérémie has completed his Ph.D. in Toulouse, France in the laboratory of Dr. Didier Trouche/Dr. Yvan Canitrot where he studied the mechanisms that maintain genomic integrity. He published an exciting discovery about the role of JMJD6 in the maintenance of ribosomal DNA integrity in response to DNA damage: Read his article.

In the lab, Jérémie is interested in studying the mechanisms that regulate the DNA damage response using modern genome editing technologies!

Welcome to the lab, Jérémie!
