The Epigenetics & Cell Fate centre is a multidisciplinary research centre, opened in 2009 on the Paris Rive-Gauche campus. The centre brings together a network of teams with complementary expertise in the fields of stem cell differentiation and epigenetics, with a particular focus on DNA methylation, histone variants and modifications, and non-coding RNAs.

Research in the Epigenetics & Cell Fate centre is focused on the role of epigenetic regulations in determining cell fate and differentiation programmes in normal and pathological conditions in mammals.
