Laurent Duca is Professor at the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne where he leads with Pr. Philippe Gillery a team dealing with Matrix Aging and Vascular Remodeling. This team belongs to the CNRS associated research unit UMR CNRS/URCA 7369 MEDyC, a major lab in France specialized in cell/extracellular matrix interactions studies in pathophysiological contexts such as aging and cancer. He is interested in the molecular mechanisms leading to vascular elastolysis and in the role played by elastin-derived peptides (EDP) in the development of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. Using integrative technologies from Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Imaging, in vivo murine models (WT or transgenic) and in silico approaches (developed in collaboration with Pr. Manuel Dauchez’s group, UMR CNRS 7369), he extensively studied the signaling pathways and the operating mechanism of the Elastin Receptor Complex (ERC). The data gathered allowed him to propose a new pharmacology targeting the ERC and permitting to limit the deleterious involvement of elastin peptides in pathological vascular remodeling. His team also develops thematic dealing with the role of EDP in diabetes outcome, regulation of thrombosis and new molecular therapeutic approaches targeting the ERC. Moreover, a research axis on non enzymatic post-translational modifications of extracellular matrix proteins (carbamylation, glycoxydation) and their implication during aging is also developed (leading by Pr. Philippe Gillery).

Caroline Reynaud is senior scientist at CNRS in France where she leads the Lysyl oxidases and bone metastases group at the UMR 1033 INSERM/UCBL in Lyon. This unit is a major lab in France specialized in bone physiopathology. One of their objectives is to identify the underlying molecular mechanisms governing the nesting of tumor cells in the bone marrow and those that favor the formation of medullary micrometastases, the prelude required for bone metastasis formation. Additionally, they develop new biological markers of early relapse of cancer in bone will and test novel therapeutics in animal models of malignant bone diseases.
Caroline obtained her PhD in 2000 at the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Lyon. Her three-year post-doctoral fellowship on cell cycle in the laboratory of Prof Robert Margolis (IBS, Grenoble), led her to published important papers on the regulation of cell cycle checkpoints during tumor progression. She was recruited at the CNRS in 2003 in Pascal Sommer’s lab (IBCP, Lyon) to work on Lysyl oxidases and skin tumors. Then she moved to UMR1033 to study the role of Lysyl oxidases in the formation of the premetastatic niche into the bone marrow.

Florence Ruggiero is Director of Research at the CNRS. She leads a a team “Matrix Biology and Pathology Institute of Functional Genomics of Lyon. Since January 2016, she also serves as the Director of the IGFL. Her training background combines cell biology, molecular biology, microscopies, biochemistry and development. Her primary research interest, as a young investigator at the CNRS, was the analysis of cell-collagen interactions. For that, she developed new methods to produce recombinant full-length collagens and derived-domains in different expression systems including plants. Since then, the super family of collagens became “her family” and she has now 30 years of experience in matrix biology research. In 2003, she started to run her independent group at the Institute of Protein Chemistry and Protein (IBCP, Lyon). Since then, the analysis of collagen function in model organisms was at the core of her research. Because collagens form intricate network in tissues, predicting their function is difficult. Her main objective was to understand the diversity of collagen functions from molecules to integrative systems using cell and animal models. In parallel, from 2006 to 2010, she successively held the position of vice-director and then director of the SFR-Bioscience-Gerland (UMS3444/US8). In 2011, her team moved to the Institute of Functional Genomics of Lyon (IGFL, ENSL), a new institute of the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, interested in evolution, development and integrative physiology using functional genomics. During the last years, her group have explored the amazing functional diversity of collagen genes during development and analyzed possible links between defective collagen function and human diseases, using combined approaches including functional genomics, biochemistry, cell biology and integrative biology. Her lab is currently interested in unraveling the function of collagens in development, tissue regeneration and rare connective tissue disease as the classic Elhers-Danlos syndrome and neuromuscular disorders associated to collagen deficiency. Florence Ruggiero has published more than 90 publications and reviews in the Matrix Biology field. Recently, she was honored to serve as Chair for the 2017 Collagen Gordon Research Conference.
