Tinh-Suong Nguyen obtained her Master and PhD degrees from the Université Paris Diderot, where she worked under the supervision of Pr. Philippe Silar in the “Génétique et Épigénétique des Champignons” team of the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire des Énergies de Demain. There, her studies focused on the model fungus Podospora anserina and its epigenetic cell degeneration process known as “Crippled growth”. Tinh-Suong discovered and characterized twelve new components involved in this phenomenon. Subsequently, she joined the Fungal Epigenomics Group, where she is currently pursuing a recombination-independent mechanism of DNA homology recognition at the basis of Repeat-Induced Point mutation and Meiotic Silencing by Unpaired DNA in Neurospora crassa.
