Christophe Robaglia

I started my biological career by studying Microbiology at the University of Paris XII. A master internship on with Agrobacterium rhizogenes introduces me to Plant Sciences. I spend a predoctoral stay in Sherbrooke (Quebec) to study plant metallothioneins and I obtained my PhD at INRA Versailles with Francine Casse, sequencing the genome of Potato Virus Y (1988) and was postdoc a CSIRO Canberra (Australia) to work on Tobacco Ringpot Virus Satellite RNA with Wayne Gerlach. I was back at INRA Versailles (1991) as junior group leader and moved to Commissariat for Atomic Energy (CEA) in Cadarache in 1999 and to Aix Marseille University in 2004 as a Professor. There, I developed a team studying translation and signaling through the TOR pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana.  The team is now located on the University of Aix Marseille Campus of Luminy in Marseille and is part of the Institute of Biosciences and Biotechnology of Aix Marseille associating CEA, CNRS and the University.
