Odile Kellermann was a student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS – Ulm). She obtained a teaching degree (« Agrégation ») of Biochemistry-Physiology and defended a Ph.D. in Biochemistry (University Paris VII). She is Professor (PREX) at the University Paris Sud Orsay – ENS-Ulm and co-head of the team « Stem Cells, Signaling and Prions » at the University Paris Descartes.

Since the seventies, Odile Kellermann has been involved in stem cell research. As a student in François Jacob’s laboratory at the Pasteur Institute, she developed a strategy of immortalization of precursors of mesodermal, neuroectodermal and endodermal lineages. Since 1987, the central theme of research of the team has dealt with the signaling pathways that sustain the homeostasis of stem cells, the coordinated implementation of specialized phenotypic functions and the maintenance of a differentiated state.
