Marc Edery received his Ph.D. degree in 1981 in biology and biochemistry from the University of Paris, France. After graduating, he joined the Cancer Research Laboratory at UC Berkeley and then the Hormone Research Laboratory at UCSF, USA, where he has spent four years. He then joined the INSERM in Paris, France, in 1985, where he was interested in the field of research of endocrine-related diseases in several species including humans. He serves now as the Director of Research at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris. He is one of the Editorial Members in the journal TOXICON. He serves as a reviewer of peer-reviewed journals in the area of toxicology and proteomics. Beside his forensic work, his main research interest is now devoted to the mechanisms of action of cyanotoxins in fish. During the past years, he has developed in his laboratory a fish model, medaka, to analyze toxicity of cyanotoxins as well as some other toxins like plant toxins. In order to obtain a global view of the mechanisms of action of cyanotoxines, he has started pioneering work on toxicoproteomics in medaka fish. He authored more than 130 scientific articles.
