YES: Young Epigenetic Scientists club

YES (Young Epigenetic Scientists) is a club set up in February 2024 in the Epigenetics and Cell Fate Center that gathers Ph.D. students, Post-Docs, and Engineers driven by a common desire to explore life beyond academia. Recognizing the need to understand and prepare for the diverse career pathways available to us, we have come together to promote exchanges outside the academic field.

YES contacts:



The YES aims to promote the professional integration of young researchers and to encourage the establishment of networks with the private sector and other research sites in Paris. Our group provides a platform to share experiences, insights, and resources related to transitioning from academia to various professional domains.



  • Share information about career path options
  • Professional afterworks to meet people who have left academia
