 Portrait CH Nous avons appris avec grande tristesse le décès de notre collègue Christian Hamel, précédent Directeur de l’Institut des Neurosciences de Montpellier, et grand spécialiste de la vision.
Christian dirigeait l’équipe de génétique et thérapie des cécités rétiniennes et du nerf optique, affiliée au Labex EpiGenMed. Son activité de recherche était un modèle de lien entre recherche fondamentale, recherche clinique, et application aux patients. Il avait créé Mayola, un centre de référence pour les maladies sensorielles génétiques, et était également un pionnier dans le domaine de la vision artificielle. Le Labex EpiGenMed perd une de ses grandes figures scientifiques et une personnalité attachante.
Nous pensons à sa famille ainsi qu’à ses collaborateurs.
