Odile joined Sophie Polo’s group in January 2014. Recruited as a research assistant (IE2 CNRS) in 1983 after her masters’degree in physiology and pharmacology from the University of Tours, she worked for 9 years in Yves Courtois laboratory on the purification of growth factors to study their activity and action mechanisms. She then moved to the Andre Lwoff and Gustave Roussy Institutes in Villejuif where she worked for 19 years in Alain Sarasin laboratory on the genetic and molecular characterization of the human genome instability disorders Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP), Trichothiodystrophy and Cockayne syndrome. In 1999, she started working with Thierry Magnaldo on developing keratinocyte cultures from XP patients for skin reconstruction and for the phenotypic reversion of the disease by retroviral transduction. In 2008, she joined Corinne Dupuy’s group in the research unit headed by Patricia Kannouche where she set up primary and immortalized cultures of patients’ thyrocytes to study their differentiation.
