Laurent Muller got his PhD in Biochemistry and Cell Biology in 1996 at Université Paris-Orsay (France) and received further training at the Louisiana State University Medical Center in New Orleans (LA, USA) from 1996 to 1999. He was appointed as an INSERM researcher in the Chair of Experimental Medicine at the Collège de France in Paris in 2001. He is a board member of the French Society for Angiogenesis (SFA). He has supervised 6 PhDs and co-authored 42 original research papers and 4 reviews in international scientific journals (ORCID).
His early work aimed at analyzing the processing of hormones and neuroendocrine peptides by the prohormone converting enzymes in the pituitary and by endothelin converting enzyme in the cardiovascular system. Over the last 15 years, he has shifted his research to the investigation of extracellular matrix remodeling associated with angiogenesis and microvascular integrity. His interests in this field more specifically target the establishment of the vascular basement membrane during vessel formation and the role of the cross-linking enzyme lysyl oxidase-like 2 (LOXL2) in this context. For these studies, he has acquired experience in in vitro angiogenesis models and their imaging in 3D models of either hydrogels or scaffold-free cell-sheet culture.
These cell biology projects have also led to applications in a tissue engineering context. First, the development of 3D models of capillary formation led him to apply his research to characterization of the angiogenic potential of circulating progenitors or iPS-derived endothelial cells, as well as that of mesenchymal stem cells; further applications include focus on the generation of in vitro pre-vascularized tissue constructs and development of reconstructed vascularized skin. Then, he is investigating biomimetic approaches based on cross-linking enzymes for the improvement of the angiogenic properties of hydrogels of natural polymers, including tropoelastin and collagen.

Ulrich Valcourt is a full Professor in Cell Biology at the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1. Since January 2021, he leads the team “Matricellular Proteins and Pathological Dysregulations” in the Laboratory of Tissue Biology and Therapeutic Engineering (LBTI) in Lyon, a research unit having a strong expertise on extracellular matrix biology and tissue repair. Using multi-scale approaches, combining cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry and biophysical methods, as well as genetically engineered mouse models, his lab is currently interested in unraveling the function of matricellular proteins in tissue homeostasis and pathological contexts. Studies primarily focus on the role of Tenascin-X in cutaneous and vascular tissue homeostasis, but also in several diseases such as in cancers and rare connective tissue disorders (classical-like Ehlers-Danlos syndrome). Ulrich is the current treasurer of the French Society of Extracellular Matrix Biology.
He has a scientific background in molecular and cellular biology, with two main scientific interests during his career: TGF-β superfamily signaling and Matrix Biology. Through his PhD training in Lyon (Dr. Mallein-Gerin, IBCP) and a first post-doctoral position in Sweden (Dr. Moustakas, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research), he deciphered the signaling pathways and transcriptomic programs by which Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMPs) and TGF-β signaling factors orchestrate developmental (chondrogenic/osteogenic differentiation) and pathological (epithelial-mesenchymal transition in cancer) cell responses. After a second post-doctoral experience studying the effects of collagen aging on bone fragility (Pr. Delmas, U403 INSERM, Lyon), he obtained an Associate Professor position at the University of Lyon and joined the team of Dr. Lethias (IBCP, Lyon) to explore the cellular functions of Tenascin-X. He then moved to the group of Dr. Bartholin in the Cancer Research Center of Lyon (CRCL), where he notably analyzed the extracellular regulation of the TGF-β bioavailability and signaling by matricellular proteins. He finally moved to his current research unit in 2018 as a full Professor. Ulrich Valcourt has published more than 30 articles and reviews with a primary focus on TGF-β and Matrix Biology fields.

Patricia ALBANESE is Professor of Cell Biology (CNU 65th section) at the University Paris Est Creteil (UPEC), in the Gly-CRRET laboratory. She joins Gly-CRRET Lab in 2005 as a Stem Cell biologist and discovers the “GAG world” from the Matrix. Since, she has been developing her research field on the Glycobiology of Stem Cells for Tissular Engineering, at the interface between sugar chemistry, molecular and cellular biology. This research topic is based on specific skills to purify Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) chains from proteoglycans and to characterize their structural and functional modifications. She is interested on degenerative pathologies associated to aging, strong extracellular matrix remodeling and inflammatory responses.
Until recently she was studying repairing processes in different tissues such as bone marrow, skeletal and cardiac muscles, lung, vascular system, and bone. She has demonstrated the impact of GAG structural modifications, such as sulfations of Heparan Sulfates (HS), on different cells properties and specifically on hematopoietic, endothelial and mesenchymal stem cells mobilization, proliferation and differentiation processes. Since a few years, she focuses on HS involvement in cartilage matrix remodelig and synovial fluid inflammatory reactions during Osteoarthritis (OA), in association with Rheumatologists clinicians from the Henri Mondor Hospital (AP-HP Creteil). These studies allow to identify matricial and cellular GAG with specific signatures, as well as GAG biosynthesis or degradation enzymes, that are involved in physiopathological responses during OA.
Her main goal is to propose new therapeutic strategies associating stem cells to matricial glycanic products, based on GAG mimetics or GAG enzyme antagonists. In this purpose, she coordinates scientific projects, in collaboration with clinicians, academic researchers and industrial partners (ANR GAG-like, CNRS GDR, Société Francaise de Rhumatologie, Fondation Arthritis, Fondation Arthrose, IBSA company, Regenlab company…). All the skills are developped on a glycomic technological platform (https://www.vjf.cnrs.fr/spip/crret/-Analyse-de-GAGs-GLYCO-mix-) and shared between different teams of the Gly-CRRET lab : Pr. Dulce PAPY-GARCIA, working on Alzheimer Disease, and Dr. Guillermo BARETTO, working on Lung Fibrosis and Epigenetic.
Furthermore, she is the head of the Biology Department of the UPEC Sciences and Technological Faculty since 2018. She has been leading the “BIOMICS” Master Formation of the UPEC since 2016, based on Omics technologies applied to Integrative Biology on Health and Environment, labelized by the “Pole de competitivité Medicen de la Region Ile de France”. Patricia Albanese has published 30 articles on Stem Cells and GAG fields.

Our unit is the leader in France for investigating the matrikines which are biological active fragments from major components of the extracellular matrix, collagen, elastin and proteoglycans. These matrikines are essentially studied in tumoral and vascular pathologies. Our team is focusing on LRP-1-mediated endocytosis and extracellular vesicles mediated cell communication between tumor cells, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts.
Stéphane Brézillon has obtained his Joint PhD in 1997 at Reims (Dr E. Puchelle (INSERM U514, University of Medicine, Reims, France) and at Hannover (Pr B. Tümmler (Klinische Forschergruppe, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Germany). After a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Prof G. Cramb (Saint Andrews, Scotland, UK), he became project leader in a biotechnology company, Euroscreen, Brussels, Belgium (1999-2004). Then, he moved to Reims in 2004 in the CNRS unit of Prof. François-Xavier Maquart to set up a group with Dr Y. Wegrowski studying the mechanisms of action of Lumican, a Small Leucine Rich Proteoglycan, able to inhibit melanoma progression. Using integrative technologies from Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Spectral Imaging, in vivo murine models (WT and lumican deleted mice) and in silico approaches (developed in collaboration with Pr. Manuel Dauchez’s group, UMR CNRS 7369), he extensively studied the signaling pathways, the mechanisms of action, and the modeling of Lumican with its receptors. He is developing a strong collaboration with Prof. Karamanos (University of Patras, Greece) and Prof. M. Gotte (University of Munster, Germany) and he belongs to the H2020 GLYCANC consortium and more recently to the IRN CeSMeR.
Stéphane Brézillon has published more than 57 articles with a focus on lumican mechanism of action and its interaction with alpha2beta1 integrin and MMP-14.

In 2007, Sabrina Kellouche-Gaillard obtained her PhD in Cutaneous Biology and Pharmacology from the University of Paris 7, INSERM 553 unit « Hemostasis, endothelium, angiogenesis » of Chantal Legrand. She did a first post-doctoral fellowship at Cergy-Pontoise University, in ERRMECe Lab, then a second post-doc as a University Hospital Assistant in Cellular Biology at the Faculty of Medicine of Amiens. Sabrina Kellouche was recruited at the University of Cergy Pontoise in march 2010 as associate professor in cell biology, attached to ERRMECe Lab (Extracellular Matrix-Cell Relations Research Team). She is now member of the group MEC-uP (Extracellular Matrix and Physiopathology) of the ERRMECe lab.
Her research fields focus on the cell relation with complex microenvironments using Cellular & molecular approaches. Understanding the cell-ECM interactions likely to be involved in physiological (tissue repair) or pathological (tumor dissemination, fibrosis) processes is at the heart of her research concerns. Indeed, she was able to study the mechanisms involved during these processes and their regulation by the matrix microenvironment (extracellular matrix proteins, growth factors, etc.) which influence interactions between cells, their behavior (proliferation, migration…) and their fate (differentiation, apoptosis…). Over the past few years, she has been able to acquire solid experience, particularly in the development and reconstitution of microenvironment models which involve molecules of the extracellular- matrix: 3D cell cultures (fibrin matrix, collagen-GAG-Chitosan matrix), co -cultures of different cell types, development of culture in suspension (tumor spheroids), development of in vitro forensic models of biological traces in criminalistic concerns…The characterization of the matrix microenvironment and its regulating impact on cellular activities stay at the center of her research. Sabrina Kellouche-Gaillard has published 20 articles, she supervised 3 PhD and is also the co-director of the Master’s degree called BioC2M “Cellular and Molecular Biology of the Microenvironment”.

Emeline Perrier-Groult is senior scientist at CNRS in France and recently joined the “Adult mesenchymal stem cell : tissue homeostasis and regeneration” team at the INSERM UMR1183 (IRMB Institute for Regenerative Medicine and Biotherapy) in Montpellier. The aim of IRMB is to facilitate the transfer of research on stem cell biology to clinical applications in coordination with clinical specialists in chronic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, lung disease, liver disease, neurodegenerative disease, ageing, rare genetic diseases, autoinflammatory disorders, diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders). More precisely, Emeline works in the “Tissue Engineering & Extracellular Vesicles applied to Rheumatic Diseases” group leads by Dr. Danièle Noël. This group aim at better understanding osteo-articular diseases using relevant in vitro models based on organoid formation and 3D bioprinting approaches. This should allow to develop innovative therapeutic strategies for cartilage repair to restore joint function. Organoids and joint-on-chip technologies should feature a complex joint environment to get the proper structural organization required for both cartilage and sub-chondral bone formation. The optimized combinations of biomaterials, cells, bioactive factors are tested in vitro and in vivo to evaluate the potential of cartilage and bone formation by mesenchymal stromal cells for tissue engineering applications. New-generation biomaterials are generated in collaboration with chemists and close interactions with biomecanicians for biomechanical stimulation and characterization of neotissues. Joint-on-chips and organoids will be used to develop models mimicking the inflammatory or degenerative context of rheumatic diseases and evaluate cellular or pharmalogical treatments.
Emeline obtained her PhD in 2004 at Montpellier (INSERM U637, Pr. Sylvain Richard) and Geneva (Laboratory of endocrinology and diabetology at the Cantonal University Hospital of Geneva, Pr. Michel Rossier). After a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in the cardiovascular division of the Research Institute Servier (Suresnes, France), she joined the CNRS group of Dr. Frédéric Mallein-Gerin (Biologie et Ingénierie du Cartilage, IBCP) in Lyon where she was recruited in 2009 to work on the influence of three-dimensional architecture and various biomaterials on the phenotype of chondrocytes. Then, in 2021, she moved to INSERM UMR1183 to develop articular organoids from MSCs or MSCs derived from iPSCs (induced pluripotent stem cells) and to evaluate the impact of different physical and/or biological stimuli on the development of osteoarticular pathologies. Emeline has published more than 30 papers in renowned international journals.
