Dr Véronique Azuara PhD
Dr Véronique Azuara has worked for many years in developmental biology and genetics. Her work started with the study of lymphocytes in the Pasteur Institute in Paris and then moved to research in epigenetics at the MRC/Clinical Sciences Centre at Hammersmith. She has been interested in understanding how the identity of a cell is defined and maintained throughout its development. She has published ground-breaking work on how certain regulators, key to development, are primed in the early embryo for later development. She recently moved to Imperial College to establish her own laboratory at about the same time as the birth of her daughter Charlotte in November 2006. She is now actively building up new yet inter-related identities – being an inspiring mother, lecturer and research director. In her spare time, Véronique likes looking at the most unexpected sides of life through her camera. She enjoys the smell of roses, worldwide literature and music with a passion for Tango and Sephardic music.
