The Curie Institute Research Center
The “Institut Curie” is a major player in the research and fight against cancer. It consists of a hospital and a Research Center of more than 1000 employees with a strong international representativeness.
The objective of the Curie Institute Research Center is to develop basic research and to use the knowledge produced to improve the diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutics of cancers as part of the continuum between basic research and innovation serving the patient


The Chromatin Dynamics Team (UMR 3664-CNRS), led by Dr G. Almouzni, explores how chromatin organization from its elementary bricks (histone variants and nucleosomes) up to chromosomal landmarks and nuclear architecture functionally contributes and adapts to cell physiology

We aim to define the molecular interactions between histone chaperones and histone variants and how they act as a regulated flexible network to assemble, maintain or change chromatin states during normal (development, differentiation) and pathological (cancer) changes of cell fate. We combine biological models from cells to tissue with approaches involving biochemistry, omics and imaging.

The project explores the 3D spatial chromatin organization in cells undergoing changes of fate in cell cycle and differentiation. Chromatin regulators, histone variants and DNA transactions such as replication, transcription and repair will be examined, along with chromosomal loci and landmarks (eu/heterochromatin) from normal to pathological states.
