Organization and governance

Who Am I? is coordinated by Claire Rougeulle (Epigénétique et Destin Cellulaire), Benoit Ladoux (Institut Jacques Monod) and François Villa (Centre de Recherche Psychanalyse, Médecine et Société). 

The Executive Committee is the main decision structure of the labex: it defines and decides the scientific and financial strategies; selects the financed collaborative programs and decides on the integration of new teams. Together with the project manager, the executive committee is also in charge of the project management and reporting. It is composed of the two coordinators together with the partner representatives.

The General Assembly regrouped all team (group) leaders involved in the project and, using the expertise of the Scientific Advisory Board, develops and debates the scientific policy of the labex. 

A local TT Committee (TTC), dedicated to the transfer of technology, has been created to coordinate technology and scientific survey of Labex activity and, in particular, to identify patenting opportunities, to assist scientists in discussions with the valorization experts, and to drive contract and/or license negotiations.
