Welcome to Sébastien!

My name is Sébastien Chamois and I recently arrived in Lausanne after eight years as a student at Sorbonne University in Paris.

During these years, I developed a high interest for the study of gene expression and RNA regulation that motivated me to obtain a master’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. I then joined, for my doctoral research, Dr Lionel Benard’s group (Paris) to study the degradation of altered mRNA by a cytoplasmic surveillance pathway (No Go Decay pathway) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.  

I discovered that the same enthusiasm towards RNA biology was shared by the Gatfield’s group that I am now grateful to join as a postdoc. At the CIG, I will study natural ribosome pausing and its importance for gene expression.

Welcome to Ramya!

I did my undergraduate degree in engineering in Biotechnology at Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati in India. 
For my doctoral work, I joined Prof. Mukund Thattai at National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), India to understand the billion-year-old origins of eukaryotic intracellular compartments. Here, I discovered the role of gene duplications and hybridization in this key evolutionary transition.

Diving deeper, I joined Prof. Michael Desai at Harvard to understand the effect of mutation rate on the dynamics and outcome of evolutionary processes. During this time, I read a phenomenal paper visualizing the transcriptional activity of key morphogens as the stripes were formed during drosophila development. This marked a turning point for me igniting my interest in transcriptional regulation and developmental biology.

Thus, I shifted my research focus and joined Vastenhouw lab as a postdoc. Here, I am working to understand the relationship between spatial organization of genes and their activity using live imaging techniques in early zebrafish embryos.
