Germano Cecere, Ph.D.
Group Leader

I received my BSc degree in Biotechnology from the University of Naples “Federico II” in Italy in 2004, and my Ph.D. from University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 2008. I started to work on RNA silencing phenomena during my graduate study in the laboratory of Dr. Carlo Cogoni, where I discovered how repetitive DNA elements are recognized and silenced by the RNA interference (RNAi) machinery. After completing my Ph.D., I joined the laboratory of Dr. Alla Grishok at Columbia University for my postdoctoral work. In the Grishok laboratory, I studied chromatin- and RNA-mediated epigenetic mechanisms using C. elegans as a model organism. I used high-throughput genomic approaches combined with genetic, biochemical, and molecular biology tools to study the role of chromatin-binding factors and short RNAs in transcriptional regulation during C. elegans development. I am currently a Group Leader at Institute Pasteur in Paris, in the Department of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology. My main interest is to to characterize the role of RNA-based mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance during animal development and upon environmental changes, using C. elegans as an epigenetic model system.
