  • Marie-Christine Birling, PhD
    Head associate of the Genetic Engineering and Model validation Department Group Leader Genetic Engineering, Institut Clinique de la Souris
    Biography
      Dr. Marie-Christine Birling received her PhD in Molecular Biology Neurosciences from the University Strasbourg in 1994. She continued her research at the SmithKline Beecham, near London as a postdoctoral fellow trying to better understand the development of glial cells. She then pursued her research in finding new oligodendrocytes specific genes through a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Edinburgh. She was recruited permanently at the Institut Clinique de la Souris in 2003. Since then she leads the genetic engineering team. In 2008 she was appointed Head associated for the Genetic Engineering and Model Validation Department. She advises scientists on the best approach for generating relevant animal models (mouse and rat). She has initiated more than 1500 à la carte models with some of them leaded to high impact scientific paper. Since 2013, she has implemented the CRISPR/Cas9 technology and now, most of the models are generated through this approach (Knock-Out, conditional Knock-Out, small Knock-In). Marie-Christine is also in charge of internal R&D projects. With her team, she has developed a new CRISPR approach (called CRISMERE) for the generation of structural genomic variants (here Down syndrome models, Birling et al., 2017). She regularly gives courses to Master's students and is invited to give talks

      Biography
        Dr Gaetan Burgio, is a geneticist Group leader at The John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) at the ANU. Gaetan was born in France and completed his education at Paris. He graduated in 2002 with a Medical Doctor Degree and completed his PhD in 2008 from Pasteur Institute at Paris. He migrated to Australia to join Professor Simon Foote as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Tasmania from 2008 to 2012 and Macquarie University at Sydney from 2012 to 2015 to work on a large-scale mutagenesis in mice to uncover the role of genes that are protective against malaria infection. In 2015 he was appointed as a group leader at JCSMR to establish his research program on the development CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology and bacteria pathogenesis. His current research aims to explore the diversity of the CRISPR systems and to develop the technology for precision medicine or gene therapy purposes. He also leads a mouse transgenesis facility, which generated CRISPR edited mice for precision medicine.
      • Ryan Donnelly

        • Nikolay Kandul, PhD
          Research Scientist, University of California, San Diego
          Biography
            Dr. Kandul grew up and was educated in Russia. He continued his graduate education in the U.S. and received his Ph.D. at Harvard University. As a student, he was interested in evolution and was studying the effect of chromosomal rearrangements on the origins of new butterfly species. Later Dr. Kandul became interested in engineering and building genetic tools in model organisms with an ultimate goal to address big and yet more applied biological questions such as aging. At Caltech, he developed an innovative approach to study the role of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations in aging of muscle cells, and found that our cells have a capacity to selectively remove mutant mtDNA in vivo, rejuvenate themselves, and slow aging at the cellular level. Now, at the UC San Diego, Dr. Kandul is developing novel technologies to suppress or replace insect populations, such as the precision guided Sterile Insect Technique (pgSIT) and CRISPR/Cas9-based homing gene drives, and tackling many other challenging biological questions.
