Jean-Louis Hilbert

Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille, France


Jean-Louis Hilbert received an M.S. degree in plant biology and physiology (1985) and a Ph.D. degree in plant and forest sciences (1989) from the University of Nancy, France. In September 1990, Hilbert joined the University of Lille Nord de France in Villeneuve dˈAscq, France, as an Assistant Professor to introduce molecular approaches for studying somatic embryogenesis in plants. Hilbert became a Professor in 2002, and, since 2006, Hilbert has served as the Head of a Research Unit associated with the French National Agronomic Research Institute (INRA) as UMR N°1281 INRA, University Lille 1, France, “Abiotic Stresses and Plant differentiation.” From 1990 to 2009, Hilbert was involved mainly in projects concerning chicories, like somatic embryogenesis, but also applied projects associating different industrial partners. Since 2009, Hilbert was involved in plant secondary metabolism and leading projects about hydroxycinnamic acids and lactone sesquiterpenes in chicory. He is now in charge of the team “Plant Quality and Adaptation to Stress” in the Laboratory of Agrofood and Biotechnology, Institute Charles Viollette.
