Charles Durand received his PhD in Developmental Biology from the University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC, Paris). He did his PhD in the laboratory of Prof. Jacques Charlemagne, where he studied the development of the immune system in the amphibian embryo. He did his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Prof. Elaine Dzierzak (Erasmus Medical Center, The Netherlands) where he analyzed the molecular identity and cellular complexity of the AGM (Aorta-Gonads-Mesonephros) hematopoietic microenvironment in the mouse embryo. Since 2005, he became Associate Professor at UPMC in the laboratory of Dr. Thierry Jaffredo. His main research interests are the identification of the molecular mechanisms involved in the cross-talk between hematopoietic stem cells and stromal cells. He is the chairperson of the MSc Stem Cell Biology at UPMC.
We are signed up with aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus.
These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a "patron-driven demand" model.
