Marc Pouliot serves as a Professor in the Department of microbiology-immunology and infectiology, Faculty of Medicine, at Laval University in Canada. He received his Ph.D. degree in cellular and molecular biology in 1994 at Laval University, then pursued his studies as an Medical Research Council (MRC, Canada) postdoctoral Fellow at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, in Australia, where he worked on inflammatory processes regulating leukocyte activation. Dr Pouliot became a recipient of the prestigious MRC Centennial Fellow to pursue his specialization in the dialogue between inflammatory and nerve cells, at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston. His research group currently specializes on granulocytes and their capacity to orchestrate initial steps of the inflammatory response. His group have been characterizing endogenous anti-inflammatory pathways such as cAMP-elevating agents and are actively working at establishing biological significance and utility in situations of inflammation, using in vitro and in vivo inflammatory models.
