Institut Curie, France
Allison Bardin earned her PhD in biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, USA and did post-doctoral studies in Paris, France, at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the Institut Pasteur. Her research group at the Institut Curie, Paris, France, uses the Drosophila melanogaster intestinal stem cell model to understand the molecular mechanisms fundamental to control stem cell self-renewal. Recent studies from her team investigate how these processes are altered during aging due to acquisition of mutations in the stem cell genome. She directs a French Stem Cell Network of the CNRS comprised of groups focusing on in vivo models of stem cell biology. Recent awards include the Bronze Medal of the CNRS (2016) and the Schlumberger Foundation for Education and Research Prize (2017).
