I am a Director of Research at the MMG center and the head of the department “Development and Pathophysiology of the Cardiovascular System (DevCard)”. I am currently nucleus member of the working group Development, Anatomy and Pathology from the ESC. I received my Ph.D. in Cell Biology in 1997 from Aix Marseille University, for my work on the formation of the heart in the fruitfly Drosophila. I did my postdoctoral training at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, NY, USA from 1997 to 2001. In 2001 I joined the lab of Margaret Buckingham at the Pasteur Institute, where I have participated to the discovery of the second heart field in the mammalian heart. In 2002, I have obtained a tenure position as young researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). I was promoted to Director of Research in 2009 at the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM).
