Tanguy Rene Vincent Lucas


Tanguy obtained his Master's degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the UMPC/ENS Paris in 2012. He completed his Ph.D. in the lab of Natalia Dostatni at the Institut Curie in Paris studying the spatio-temporal regulation of gene expression in the context of the early Drosophila embryonic development. During his Ph.D., he adapted a live imaging technique allowing to visualize transcription in real-time to the Drosophila embryo. Fascinated by genome regulation during development, Tanguy decided to join the Kohwi Lab in 2017 at Columbia University in New York for his Post-doc to study the link between genome architecture and stem cell competence using Drosophila central nervous system as a model.
