Labex EPIGENMED Montpellier, France

From genome and epigenome to molecular medicine

Chair of Excellence


In 2015, the University of Montpellier and the Laboratory of Excellence EpiGenMed jointly invited applications for a Professorship of Cellular and Molecular Biology in order to recruit an internationally established, highly qualified scientist who will set up an independent research laboratory in one of the major research institutes of Montpellier. Since September 2015, François Fagotto, a professor and researcher from Canada, occupies this position. He established his laboratory at the CRBM (Centre de Recherche de Biochimie Macromoléculaire) and is responsible for teaching in biology from the third (‘Licence’) to the fifth year (‘Master 2’) at the University of Montpellier.
