Didier Trono, M.D., completed a clinical training in pathology, internal medicine and infectious diseases in Geneva and at Massachusetts General Hospital and post-doctoral studies at MIT’s Whitehead Institute. In 1990, he moved to the Salk Institute to launch a center for AIDS research. From 1997 to 2004, he was at the University of Geneva before joining the EPFL as dean of its newly launched School of Life Sciences, a position he held for eight years. He now steers the Health 2030 Initiative, which aims at fostering the advent of personalized health in Switzerland.

Didier Trono’s research has long gravitated around interactions between viruses and their hosts. This led him first to the development of tools for gene therapy, then to epigenetics, where his work on mobile genetic elements and their controllers is providing new insights into human biology and promising leads for precision medicine.
