8 March 17: FADex program in CarMeN

8 March 17: FADex program in CarMeN


The FADex (French-American Doctoral Exchange) program was created in 2014 by the office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States. This program aims at stimulating scientific exchanges between American and French Ph.D studients working in the same field of research in order to encourage the development of French-American collaboration in the future. This program also serves as an opportunity for American studients to better understand the French research system.

This 2017 issue was made possible thanks to the strong involvement and support of partners: the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), the Gustave Roussy Institute, CarMeN Laboratory in Lyon, C3M laboratory in Nice, Paul Bocuse Institute, the Canceropole of Lyon Auvergne Rhône-Alpes and the start-up Maat Pharma.

After the 2-day seminar, a group gathering the American laureates and French studients will travel to Lyon where they will have the opportunity to visit the Cardio-Metabolism Diabetes and Nutrition laboratory (CarMeN). During this visit, the american studients will have the opportunity to meet and engage in discussions with French researchers  in the field of epigenetics.  In Lyon, 4 seminars will be given on recent advances in epigenetics by Hubert Vidal, CarMeN director and head of Team1,  Luciano Pirola (researcher, Team1) et Anne Mey (researcher, Team1), Sophie Rome (researcher, Team2).

A free evening  with the CarMeN PH.D studients will be scheduled.
