Benoit Schneider is currently co-head of the team “Stem Cells, Signaling and Prions” at the University Paris Descartes. He attended the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Cachan, 1993-1997), where he obtained a teaching degree in Biochemistry (“Agrégation”) and a Master 2 in Molecular and Cell biology (University Pierre-et-Marie Curie, Paris). After obtaining a Ph.D. in biochemistry, enzymology, and structural biology (University Pierre-et-Marie Curie, Paris) in 2001 at the Pasteur Institute (Paris), he joined the laboratory of Odile Kellermann (CNRS, Villejuif) as a post-doctoral fellow to work on neuronal differentiation and prions. He subsequently got a position as “Chargé de Recherche” (scientist) in 2003 in the National Center for Scientific Research of France (CNRS). He defended an “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” in 2007 and became Professor at the Ecole Polytechnique dispensing lectures in biochemistry and toxicology. In 2014, he was promoted to “Directeur de Recherche” (principal investigator) in the CNRS.
