About Mélanie Blanc

I am currently doing my PhD research on epigenetic and transgenerational effects of environmental chemicals. Main objectives are to bring further evidence on transgenerational adverse effects of chemicals in zebrafish as well as assessing the potential of various in vitro models to be informative regarding the underlying epigenetic mechanisms that are affected. To serve this purpose, I am working with microscopy, qPCR, DNA methylation studies, metabolomics as well as fish behavior.
