Pluripotent stem cells in Mammals - Teams

Research interest

Postdoc. She obtained her PhD from the University of Lyon in 2008. After a 5-year postdoc at the Genome Institute of Singapore, where she studied different aspects of somatic cell reprogramming, she joined the Savatier team in 2013 to work on pluripotency in non-human primates. She studies the transcriptome of the macaque pre-implantation, and reprograms ES cell lines suitable for the generation of somatic chimaeras in the rhesus macaque.
