Francois Guillemot

SENIOR GROUP LEADER

Francois Guillemot is a senior group leader at the Crick. 

His PhD studies at the Institut d'Embryologie in Paris focused on development of the immune system and the structure of the major histocompatibility complex in chicks.

During postdoctoral training, with Connie Cepko at Harvard Medical School and with Alex Joyner at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, he studied differentiation of the nervous system in chick and mouse embryos.

Francois established a research group in 1994 at the Institut de Génétique et de Biologie Cellulaire et Moléculaire in Strasbourg, where he studied the role of proneural transcription factors in differentiation of the peripheral and central nervous system.

He moved to the Medical Research Council's National Institute for Medical Research (now part of the Francis Crick Institute) in 2002, where he continued to study transcriptional programmes promoting neurogenesis in the embryonic and adult brain.
