Bruno Reversade

Research Director

Institute of Medical Biology

Bruno Reversade is a Research Director at A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) and Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB). Trained at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, Reversade obtained his PhD degree from the University Pierre & Marie Curie in France. While at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in UCLA, he published landmark papers that provide an explanation for how embryonic homeostasis is maintained and how, from one egg, identical twins can be produced. Reversade’s current research involves rare human pedigrees, which suggest that the birth of monoclonal humans (identical twins) may be genetically triggered. His work is supported by the Branco Weiss Foundation, whose mission is to bridge science and society. Reversade was awarded the inaugural A*STAR Research Investigatorship in 2008; he joined IMB in the same year as a Principal Investigator, and he was promoted to Senior Principal Investigator in 2012.
