I was born in Ivory Coast and I grew up in Burkina Faso where the sun shines…. I went to Montpellier for University (Retrovirology). After several post-docs (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY= c-fos oncogene regulation of transcription and LRI = Hedgehog signaling in Drosophila), I joined JP’s lab (NIMR) in 1997 as a post-doc (yes, another post-doc !). Still interested in Morphogen gradient (Wingless, Hedgehog and Dpp) and still trying to understand why they are called morphogens…

When the sun shines, I chill out in my garden and take pictures.
