CV

JM. Ghigo.Portrait.FEMS 2015I was trained as a high-school biology teacher, but I got sidetracked and, instead, I started research as a undergraduate student in 1990 with Cécile Wandersman (pdf In memoriam) at the Institut Pasteur, Paris, France (type 1 protein secretion and haem acquisition in Gram-negative bacteria). I then obtained my PhD in 1994. While appointed Research Assistant at the Institut Pasteur in 1995, I took a 2-year post-doctoral leave of absence in 1996 to join the laboratory of Jon Beckwith at Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA, (cell division in Escherichia coli). I went back to the Institut Pasteur in 1999 to develop an independent project investigating bacterial biofilm lifestyle at the genetic and molecular level. This led to the creation of the 5 year young investigator Genetics of Biofilms group (G5-2002 to 2007) and the subsequent creation of the Genetic of Biofilms Unit (2007-present). I am currently Professor at the Institut Pasteur and Deputy Director of the Department of Microbiology at the Institut Pasteur.
