The Who am I?-exploring identity labex officially started on March 2012. In less than a year of activity, the project has already launched 4 calls for proposals, leading to the selection and funding of a first Who am I? emerging team ('epigenome integrity' team of S.Polo within the Epigenetic and Cell Fate Unit) and 16 collaborative research projects including 8 post-doctoral projects (4 for the 2012 post-doc call and 4 for the 2013 post-doc call), 4 PhD projects and 4 collaborative projects. Accordingly, a total of 8 young researchers have been recruited and joined our labex at the end of 2012.
