Catherine A. Lemarié PhD, Cardiovascular Diseases.

Course and current status

Personal statement

I obtained my PhD in cardiovascular physiology from the University of Paris VII in 2006. I then joined Dr Ernesto L. Schiffrin’s laboratory from McGill University (Montreal, Canada) as research fellow from 2006 to 2009. After a second postdoctoral experience from 2009 to 2011 in Dr Mark Blostein’s laboratory, I stared my independent research career first as a research associate and then as a project director in venous thrombosis research at McGill University. I have developed my own research topics on a new area focusing on the interactions between the immune system and venous thrombosis. In September 2018, I moved to the University of Western Brittany (EA3878) in Brest. I am leading a team working on the physiopathological mechanisms of venous thromboembolism. I have supervised 2 master students, 3 PhD students and 2 postdoctoral fellows while in Canada. My team is now composed of a master and a PhD student.

Scientific summary

My work focuses on the identification of the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating primary and recurrent venous thrombo-embolism with a particular interest in the identification of immune regulatory pathways. Over the last 5 years, I have conceived and conducted studies uncovering new mechanisms by which leukocytes are involved in venous thrombo-embolism, as demonstrated by two recent publications (Laurance et al.; Bertin et al.). I am now investigating the implication of the adaptive immune system in venous thrombo-embolism.
