“Endothelium integrity in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction“ le Mardi 26 septembre 10h30 salle Hervé Paris
Marie-Ange Renault is a researcher CRCN Inserm at UMR Inserm U1034 “Biology of cardiovascular diseases” in Bordeaux, France since 2011. More particularly, she is one of the principal investigators of the “Hedgehog and vessel diseases” project.
After she obtained a PhD in Biological and Medical Sciences at the University of Bordeaux in 2004, she performed a postdoctoral fellowship in Douglas W. Losordo’s lab (St Elizabeth medical center, Boston (2005-2006/Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute, Northwestern University, Chicago, USA (2007-2008)). She went back in Bordeaux, France at the end of 2008, where she had a postdoctoral position in Alain-Pierre Gadeau’s group at UMR Inserm U828, before she obtained a permanent position at Inserm in 2011.
Marie-Ange Renault’s research focuses on characterizing the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control the growth and maintenance of blood vessels under both physiological and pathological conditions in adults, with a particular attention devoted to the involvement of the Hedgehog signaling pathway.
Research current focuses:
Role of endothelium integrity in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction
Role of endothelial dysfunction in peripheral artery disease exacerbation into chronic limb threatening ischemia, in the setting of type 2 diabetes.
