Ramesh Pillai is a professor at the Department of Molecular Biology of the Faculty of Science. His group is interested in studying mechanisms by which eukaryotic genomes control gene expression, in particular molecular mechanisms involved in gene regulation by small noncoding RNAs and RNA modifications. His research uses interdisciplinary approaches and different model systems, including flies and mice.
Marc Abramowicz is a professor at the Department of Genetic Medicine and Development of the Faculty of Medicine, and head of the Genetic Medicine Division of the HUG. There are two axes to his research: identify causes and mechanisms of genetic disease, and identify and mitigate predisposition to common disease. His long-term goal is to identify and validate medical interventions based on patients’ genomic analysis, that improve health outcome.
Paul Guichard is an assistant professor at the Department of Cell Biology of the Faculty of Science. His research focuses on deciphering the structural mechanisms governing centriole assembly. To gain decisive insights into these mechanisms he combines the use of cell biology methods, in vitro reconstitution assays and state-of-the art imaging technologies.
Estella Poloni is a senior lecturer at the Department of Genetics and Evolution of the Faculty of Science. Her research focuses on the origin and evolution of genetic and genomic diversity in human populations, and its links to the history of migrations and cultural differentiations, such as the history of languages or the adoption of new subsistence strategies.
David Shore is a professor at the Department of Molecular Biology of the Faculty of Science. He has been appointed to his position of iGE3 director since October 1, 2017, in replacement of Prof. Stylianos Antonarakis who retired from the Department of Genetic Medicine and Development of the Faculty of Medicine.
We wish David Shore every success in his new responsibilities within iGE3 !
Brenda Kwak is a professor at the Department of Pathology and Immunology of the Faculty of Medicine. Her group is interested in the mechanisms by which connexins and pannexins participate in cardiovascular physiology and disease, including atherosclerosis.
Marc Chanson is an associate professor at the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Cell Physiology and Metabolism of the Faculty of Medicine. The main interests of his lab are the molecular mechanisms underlying airway epithelial cell repair in the context of cystic fibrosis, an infectious and pro-inflammatory genetic lung disease.
