In a few words

Romain Gibeaux carried out his PhD work in the team of Dr. Claude Antony in the Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany (2008-2012). Romain stayed at the EMBL for a bridging postdoc in the group of Dr. François Nédélec (2012-2013). He then moved to the University of California in Berkeley, USA, to join the group of Prof. Rebecca Heald in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology as an HFSP postdoctoral fellow (2013-2017). Since 2018, Romain is CNRS Researcher within the "Tubulin and Interacting Proteins" team.
