Pierre Caron

University Grenoble Alpes - Institute for Advanced Biosciences (IAB)

Since my PhD, I have been interested in the mechanisms that coordinate DNA repair and chromatin dynamics. I am passionate about genome organisation and genome evolution.

Since 2024, I have been working Grenoble in the lab of Joanna Timmins at the Institut de Biologie Structurale (IBS, France) and studying how DNA repair mechanisms, which are important for the stability of our genome, are regulated in different regions of the nuclear space.

I’m also passionate about science communication and illustrating biological mechanisms.
Apart from research, I spend a lot of time in the mountains and gardening.
