Biography of Doctor Xavier Gidrol

Dr Xavier GIDROL
Head of the “Biomics team”
Inserm U1038
CEA (Atomic Energy Commission) Grenoble
Xavier Gidrol received is PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from Aix-Marseille University in 1984. He performed post-doctoral research at Harvard School of Public Health and at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (NUS) Singapore. He was specialized in transcriptional regulation of gene expression.

He got a tenure position at INRA France, and then served as Associate Director of R&D at Xenometrix Inc. in Boulder Colorado where he got interested in global approaches and genomics. He then joined the newly created Functional Genomics Laboratory at France's Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in Paris and managed it until recently. This laboratory used large scale functional genomics approaches to analyze proliferation/differentiation balance in human cells. In 2009 he was appointed director of a new laboratory, “Biomics” at CEA in Grenoble, using microsystems for cell biology, where he focuses on large scale RNAi screen in oncology.
