Purpose of YourI2BC

  The main aims of the organisation are:

  • Building skills for scientific communication.
  • Mediating language exchange between French and International researchers at I2BC.
  • Bonding socially with each other.
  • Helping one another through our experiences.
  • Offer emotional support for times when it gets tough.

What's planned for this year?

  • Rendez-vous mensuel: meet up at the end of the month with short scientific presentations followed by snacks and drinks.
  • Soirée langues: once a month get together for language exchange over coffee.
  • Invited seminars: inviting researchers from different disciplines to share their work.
  • Jour du barbecue: have a feast with everyone together and welcome the new year.
  • Sciences et arts: share your research work creatively.

2022 I2BC BBQ



The new YourI2BC board looks forward to running events in the following year, and hope to see everyone there!



PhD student (3rd year)

Philippe Bouloc Team, Genome Biology dpt, Bldg 23

I did my bachelor and my master ( fundamental microbiology) here in Orsay at the faculty of sciences. I had the opportunity to work on different bacteria such as Bacillus subtilis or Shewanella oneidensis during my previous internships in the I2BC. I joined the lab of Philippe Bouloc to work on regulatory RNAs of Staphylococcus aureus to work on a sRNA involved in iron homeostasis, and the aim of my thesis is to decipher the regulatory networks of this sRNA using techniques of molecular biology and genetics. Outside of lab work, I like to play video games, gardening and taking care of my reptiles.”


Vice President

PhD student (1st year)

F.X. Barre Team, Genome Biology dpt, Bldg 26

I did my bachelor’s degree in Université Paris-Sud (Biologie Santé), and followed with a master’s degree in Sorbonne Université and Pasteur Institute in fundamental microbiology.

After doing my M2 internship in the FX BARRE team where I worked on the XerCD system in Vibrio cholerae, I continued as a CNRS PhD student to investigate further on integrative mobile elements exploiting XerCD in this bacterium. I’m particularly interested in the mechanism of integration of the cholera toxin-encoding bacteriophage CTX into the V. cholerae genome.

If you want to know more, dare climb up to building 26 and you might see me prowling around. I love chatting, joking, drinking beer, YourI2bc friday evening gatherings, chess, cinema, football, music (listening to) and science of course.

Claudia SEROT


PhD Student (1st year)

Renaud Legouis Team, Cell Biology dpt, Bldg 22

I did my bachelor at Versailles University and my master in Molecular & Cellular Biology at Sorbonne Université.  After my studies I had the opportunity to work on different subjects such as the readthrough or the mode of action of antimalarial in the I2BC. I’m now doing my thesis which is supervised by Renaud Legouis. I’m studying the mechanisms of resistance and adaptation to heat stress in Caenorhabditis elegans. Outside of research, I like to walk and to eat but not cook.



PhD (2nd year)

Daniel Gautheret Team, Genome Biology dpt, Bldg 26

I got my Licence and Master at the Paris-Saclay University. During my M2 internship, I studied group II introns with Maria COSTA, which are bacterial retrotransposons. I obtained my PhD scholarship to continue my research about a particular group II intron that specifically invades the groEL’s STOP codon of E.coli. The topic of my thesis is to determine its potential impact on its host cell and its mobility mode.

Outside of research, I like horse riding, making cakes, and escape games.




Inge KUHL Team, Cell Biology Dpt, Bldg 22 

I come from the south of France (I can confirm, it is less cold…), I did all my studies in Toulouse in biochemistry and structural biology.

My previous internships were completely different, I studied proteomics and resistance to cancer treatments. Now, I’m working on the regulation of mitochondrial DNA in health and disease under the supervision of Inge Kühl (Matrix team!).

I wanted to join YourI2BC team in order to involve myself in the organization of the events and to satisfy PhD students and young researchers! “
