Gene Center Seminar Series

Dr. Pierre Savatier obtained his PhD in biology at the University of Lyon, France. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Oxford University in the late 80’s, working on mouse early embryo development and pluripotent stem cells. In 2004, he joined the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) in Lyon, and participated in the creation of the Stem Cell and Brain Research Institute, where he now heads the “Pluripotent stem cells in mammals” group. His current research interests include the molecular regulation of naive pluripotency in rabbit, monkey and human pluripotent stem cells, and the generation of intra- and interspecific chimeras for developmental studies.
