Author biosketch

Professor Bertrand Mollereau (ResearcherID: S-4447-2017) is the head of the Apoptosis and Neurogenetics Group at the Laboratory of Biology and Modelling of the Cell (LBMC) at the ENS-Lyon, France. Professor Bertrand Mollereau has been nominated in 2017 for his outstanding career as a senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France.

Prof. Mollereau obtained his PhD in Immunology in 1997 from the University of Paris. He performed Post-doctoral studies and was appointed to the position of Assistant Professor at the Rockefeller University, New York (2001-2006). In 2006, Prof. Mollereau was appointed as a full professor at the ENS-Lyon, where he leads a research group investigating the mechanisms of cell death and pathophysiology of neurodegenerative diseases using Drosophila, mouse, and human cellular models.

He has 22 years of expertise in the field of cell death mechanisms and 16 years of experience as a group leader using Drosophila as model system to investigate pathological mechanisms. Prof. Mollereau has pioneered the concept of ER preconditioning by demonstrating the neuroprotective effects of mild ER stress, and his group first coined the term "ER hormesis" to describe this effect. He has also worked extensively on p53 responses and their importance in the development of cancer and that is the work he will present you today.
