After obtaining his Ph.D. degree, he was a Postdoc then an Instructor at the Center for Biochemical and Biophysical Sciences and Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA, where he continued to work on the role of angiogenin in endothelial cell biology. He then joined the Joint Center for Radiation Therapy, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA, where he worked as an Instructor on the role of the HSF-1 transcription factor in the response to heat-shock in mammalian cells. He was appointed as a Chargé de Recherche (tenure position) at the French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), Paris.
