Job offers: 3 engineers
The Bomont laboratory, and the partner Puccio are seeking highly motivated candidates in the development of therapy for neuromuscular diseases.

Science. Bomont laboratory has a long-lasting expertise in the fatal neuromuscular disease called Giant Axonal Neuropathy (GAN)1. The team identified the defective gene2, which encodes for the Gigaxonin-E3 ligase and modelized the disease in mouse and zebrafish, to unravel pivotal roles of Gigaxonin in cytoskeleton architecture3, autophagy maturation4 and motoneuron specification5. With robust animal models in hands, and the identification of therapeutic candidates, the team aims to conduct a dual preclinical study for GAN: using pharmacological and gene therapy approaches. This translational project will benefit from the expertise of the Puccio team, which succeeded in developing gene therapy programs for Friedreich Ataxia6-8.
