Newsletter #1

janvier 2023

Welcome on our first TBI newsletter

We are proud to start this new year by presenting you our very first newsletter. Now, let yourself be carried away, and discover our latest news.

Lorie Hamelin Christophe Danelon

Two Chairs at the Scientific Frontiers of TBI

In 2022, TBI has been awarded two Junior Professorships which allow it to recruit two scientists who have already demonstrated their ability to produce excellent research. The themes studied by these scientists show the richness and breadth of research conducted at the laboratory. Meet Lorie Hamelin, winner of the INRAE chair dedicated to supporting sustainable and intelligent transitions to tomorrow’s low-carbon (fossil) economies; and Christophe Danelon, winner of the INSA “synthetic cells” chair.
