Genome mechanics - A. Piazza


We are just getting started! The Lab offically (and extatically) opened on January 2020, at the fully renovated laboratory of biology and modelling of the cell (LBMC) in the privileged environment of the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) campus in Lyon. Our goal is to understand in quantitative terms the basic mechanisms involved in the repair of DNA break, their interplay with the higher "cytological" order of chromatin in the nucleus, their evolutive implications, and consequences of their defects for genomic stability.

The lab is supported by a generous ERC grant, which means that we can focus on science full time ! We would be thrilled to have equally passioned, dynamic, and creative individuals embarking with us on this adventure. Check out our research projects and if they sound exciting to you, contact us !


  • We are looking for motivated individuals interested in doing a PhD in Genetics or Computational biology. If the research projects of the lab excite you, contact me with a brief CV and your motivations.
  • We accept Master students for the 2020-2021 school year: don't hesitate to apply! Just send me a brief CV and your motivations.
