Catherine Picart has been leading a research team at LMGP for eleven years now. She was assigned to the CEA on September 1, 2019 to head the Health Department at IRIG. The department is made up of two joint research units*, one on large-scale biology and one on the biology of cancer and infection, which will merge in 2021. The eleven LMGP staffers transferred to IRIG will bring the institute’s total headcount to 120.
IRIG’s Health Department conducts basic research in biology and biotechnology applied to cancer and rare diseases. The institute works closely with Leti. Dr. Picart will continue to pursue her own research and to serve as Scientific Advisor on her two tech-transfer projects, Apios and Bioactivecoating.
