Laurence Hoareau and Manuel Carrasco joined the lab

We are welcoming two new postdoctoral fellows to our research group.

Laurence Hoareau is a scientist in cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry. She has been working for 10 years in the field of adipose tissue inflammation linked to obesity-associated diseases. Her work is essentially based on human primary culture of adipose tissue, adipocytes and stromal cells, which lead to around 20 publications. Laurence is from Reunion Island (French overseas department in Indian Ocean). She obtained her Bachelor’s degree from University of Reunion Island, her Master degree from University Pierre & Marie Curie (Paris, France) and her Ph.D in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology from University of Reunion Island.

Manuel Carrasco recently obtained his PhD from the Andalusian Molecular Biology and Regenerative Medicine Centre in Seville, Spain. Manuel’s research was focused on how transcriptional networks control pancreas and liver development and function by using mouse models (conditional knockout mice, reporter transgenic lines, cell culture, etc.). More specifically, Manuel studied the contribution of GATA transcription factors to pancreas organogenesis, regeneration and function. Manuel obtained his Bachelor degree from University of Seville and his Master degree from University Pablo de Olavide (Sevilla, Spain).
