1992 M.S., University of Rennes 1, Biology & Agronomy
1991 B.S., University of Western Brittany, Biology & Biochemistry

My laboratory uses and develops a variety of biochemical, molecular biology, cell biology, and metabolic techniques to better understand the mechanism of action of natural food compounds and evaluate their therapeutic potential against chronic metabolic disorders, such as obesity and type-2 diabetes, and associated cardiovascular dysfunction. We employ a “nutraprotective” approach where dietary molecules, e.g., short-chain fatty acids, polyphenols, are used to unlock specific mechanisms associated with the genetic underpinnings of these metabolic and proinflammatory disturbances. We deliberately utilize the pleiotropic effects of food bioactives to identify interconnectivity at the pathway and gene levels.
