Daniel Cohen

Co-Founder of Center for the Study of Human Polymorphisms, now called Fondation Jean Dausset-CEPH.

The Fondation Jean Dausset-CEPH or CEPH, formerly the Centre d’Etude du Polymorphisme Humain (the Center for the Study of Human Polymorphisms),[1] is an international genetic research center located in Paris, France. It produced a map that includes genetic markers of human chromosomes using a resource of immortalised cell cultures.

    In his 2005 addendum to his biography for the 1980 Nobel Prize, Jean Dausset noted that, thanks to his Nobel Prize and a grant from the French Téléthon, he had been able in 1984 to create the Human Polymorphism Study Centre (CEPH), which soon after became Foundation Jean Dausset-CEPH. Dausset founded CEPH with the collaboration of Professors Howard Cann and Daniel Cohen.
