Pascal Pomiès graduated in cell biology from the University of Grenoble, France in 1995. His thesis work was focused on the regulation of cell adhesion mediated by integrins. As a postdoctoral fellow, he then joined Mary Beckerle’s Lab at the University of Utah, USA, where he studied the function of cytoskeleton-associated proteins in muscle cells. He obtained a Research Assistant Professor position in 1999. He came back to France in 2000 and then spent 3 years in Charles Auffray’s group in Villejuif (France), where he obtained a permanent Inserm position. Here, he started working on the functional characterization of novel-striated muscle proteins. In 2003, he pursued his research work on muscle proteins at the CRBM in Montpellier (France), and his work became more focused on the study of mitochondrial proteins in muscle cells. Areas of expertise include cytoskeletal proteins, LIM domain proteins, striated muscle, muscle differentiation, and mitochondrial proteins.
