He is account auditor of ESCCA.
Jean-François is involved in teaching courses like the InterUniverisity Diploma of Clinical and Research Cytometry, the ESCCA summer courses and several others.
He has co-edited two books in French about Flow Cytometry Generalities and about Flow Cytometry and Cell Cycle.
