Scientific summary

During my Master, I was working on Abdominal Aortic Aneurism and the involvement of elastin derived peptides on T lymphocytes migration, activation and differentiation and the consequences for pathology progression. Then, my thesis work was about the modulation of biomaterial-induced acute inflammatory reaction. Especially, I have worked on polymorphonuclear neutrophils response to hydroxyapatite particles and the importance of IL-8 chemokine production in aseptic loosening of orthopaedic implants. During post-doctoral fellowship, I have worked on anti-apoptotic peptides effect on Osteoarthritis development due to chondrocytes apoptosis both in inflammatory and hypoxic environment. Now my work deals with inflammatory response (monocytes, osteoclasts...) to biomaterials and development of bone regeneration animal models in EA 4691 BIOS team (Biomaterials and Inflammation in Bone).
