The death on Thursday, December 8, 2022 of Michel Vervoort at the age of 52, leaves a huge void in the French scientific community, especially in the fields of Evo-Devo and in regeneration and stem cell research.
Michel was Professor in Developmental Genetics at Université Paris Cité, director of the Stem Cells, Development and Evolution team at the Institut Jacques Monod (co-supervised with Eve Gazave), junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France, but above all mentor and friend. We will remember Michel as a great scientist, with a sincere and deep kindness, and with an exemplary courage
His funeral will be held on Tuesday, December 20 at the Saint Saturnin Church in Nogent sur Marne. In his memory, a donation fund rise to the ARC is organized until 22/01/23.
