About Bruno

Bruno Fant graduated from the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon with a double Master in Biosciences and Complex Systems, during which he learned to acquire and analyse large sets of biological data. In 2014, Bruno received his PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis. His thesis focused on the multiple roles of the transcription factor Otx2 throughout brain development. Dr. Fant has extensive experience in molecular biology, high-throughput molecular approaches (proteomics, ChIP-seq, RNAseq) and bioinformatics. His current work investigates transgenerational epigenetics of parental cocaine exposure. One component of Bruno’s research focuses on the influence of cocaine taking in dads (sires) on the sperm epigenome. Additionally, he has extended our research program to study the transgenerational consequences of cocaine exposure in mothers (dams). Taken together, Bruno’s work aims at uncovering the molecular mechanisms of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance.
