Dr. Pei-Yun Jenny Wu is the head of the Genome Dynamics and Maintenance team at the Institute of Biochemistry and Cellular Genetics, CNRS UMR 5095.

Dr. Wu received her doctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Fred Winston at Harvard Medical School, investigating the structure and function of the SAGA chromatin modifying complex. She then pursued her postdoctoral work with Dr. Paul Nurse at Rockefeller University, focusing on the mechanisms that control DNA replication. In 2012, she established her independent research team at the Institute of Genetics and Development of Rennes (CNRS UMR 6290).
