Céline Vallot winner of the CNRS Innovation Medal 2022.
Céline Vallot is the winner of the CNRS 2022 Innovation Medal. Céline Vallot and her team are concentrating on non-genetic – and especially epigenetic – mechanisms, which can explain the adaptability of cancer cells. She co-developed two families of patents and two software programs, enabling interactive and rapid analysis of cell data by individuals with no special computational skills, such as biologists and physicians seeking new therapeutic targets. The CNRS research professor, who is part of the Paris-based Dynamics of Genetic Information: Fundamental Bases and Cancer laboratory (DIG-Cancer),3 founded the start-up One Biosciences, which aims to become a global leader in precision medicine for complex diseases.
