University of Lyon
Professor of Medicine
I am a Professor of Medicine at the University of Lyon in France. After many years of practice, I have decided to drive my career towards the fascinating field of research hoping to have a greater impact on human health. I wanted to be able to better understand the causes favoring the development of chronic diseases. I completed a PhD in epidemiology on obesity. I am now one of the leaders of a research team at the CarMeN institute that gathers scientists and clinicians to work on the determinants of sedentary behaviour and obesity, and on the role of the regulation of muscle mass and metabolism in obesity complications, such as insulin resistance.
I was Audrey's PhD supervisor and am very excited she asked me to team up for this exceptional project. I will ensure the health of both the explorers and study team during the study. I will also bring my experience as a senior researcher to ensure the success of the project.
