About Pierre Gönczy

Pierre Gönczy is a professor in the School of Life Sciences at EPFL. His main research interests lie in understanding fundamental cell division processes, notably in the context of a developing organism and with a focus on the mechanisms governing centriole biogenesis and centrosome duplication as well as asymmetric cell division, a crucial phenomena for generating cellular diversity during development and in stem cell lineages. To address these fundamental biological questions, his lab uses a combination of genetic, functional genomic, biochemical, proteomic and cell biological approaches, primarily in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and in human cells in culture.
