Study of ancient proteomes for phenotypic or pathologic characterization, and taxonomic determination,

Ongoing research
As a new member in the team, my aim is to set up and develop biochemical and proteomic approaches dedicated to the characterization of ancient proteins (Paleoproteomics) from fossil records. Ancient proteins provide invaluable functional information complementary to genetic data, allowing for protein-based phylogenic reconstruction, access to ancient human diseases and diet, and to biomolecular investigation of the deeper time due their longer survival in fossils compared to DNA.

Professional experience
From 2016 : Senior scientist in AMIS (Laboratoire d’Anthropologie et Imagerie de synthèse, Toulouse). Team “Paleogenetics” Group leader L. Orlando.
1999-2015 : Senior scientist at IPBS (Institut de Pharmacologie et Biology Structurale, Toulouse). Team “Molecular and Functional Pharmacology of Neuropeptide Receptors” Group leader J-M Zajac
1991-1998 : Young researcher (CNRS) at IPBS (Institut de Pharmacologie et Biology Structurale, Toulouse).Team "Molecular neuropharmacology of opioids" Group leader J-Cl Meunier
1990-1991 : Post-doctoral fellow in Molecular Biology of G-protein coupled receptors at IRIBHM (Institut de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en Biologie Humaine et Moléculaire, Brussels Belgium)


2010 : HDR
1989 : PhD in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology , Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse
