Dr Ariane Chapgier
The Cancer Institute, UCL
72 Huntley Street
  • Senior Teaching Fellow
  • Metabolism & Experi Therapeutics
  • Div of Medicine
  • Faculty of Medical Sciences

Dr. Ariane L.A. Chapgier holds a Ph.D. both in Immunology and Human Genetics. Her career is all about dissecting molecular mechanisms required for the immune response,  stemness, and differentiation. She published many papers with Jean-Laurent Casanova on the genetic predispositions to infectious diseases in human. She then got interested in stem cell research and cardiovascular development and joined the team of Peter Scambler to study the role of the histone chaperone HIRA during cardiac development. During her postdoctoral studies, Ariane developed collaborations within the epigenetic field, and she obtained an EMBO fellowship to join the laboratory of David C. Allis for six months. She was then awarded a BHF Intermediate Basic Science Research Fellowship at the UCL Institute of Child Health along with an honorary lectureship. Ariane is now a Principal Research Associate/Group Leader at the UCL Cancer Institute and is developing a new field of research on the role that inflammation has on stemness and differentiation in human.

Research Summary

We are now focussed on dissecting the immune pathways that influence stemness and differentiation. 

Teaching Summary

Dr. Chapgier is the interim director for the master of Clinical Drug Development (CDD) at UCL. She co-leads the two modules of drug discovery for that master. She is also the module lead in the genetics and epigenetics of human diseases for the master of precision medicine at UCL.
