Jean-Michel Cioni received a Master Degree in Health Science-Neurobiology from the University of Montpellier, France. He then did his PhD in the laboratory of Dr. Fabrice Ango at the Institute of Functional Genomics (CNRS, INSERM, Montpellier, France), working on neuronal development in the cerebellar cortex.
In 2013, he moved for his postdoctoral training to Pr. Christine Holt’s laboratory in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. There, first as an EMBO postdoctoral fellow and then as a Research Associate, he focused his research on the control of gene expression by mRNA transport and local translation in neuronal compartments.
In 2019, Dr. Cioni obtained the Armenise-Harvard Foundation Career Development Award and established his laboratory at the San Raffaele Institute in Milano.
