Gilles Crambert received his Ph.D. degree in biology at the University of Paris-Sud, Paris, France, in 2000. He then completed a first postdoctoral stay at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology (Käthi Geering’s group). His second postdoctoral fellowship took place at Yale University (USA) at the Cellular and Molecular Physiology Department under the direction of Michael Caplan. Since 2005, he is the Group Leader and PI (tenure position) at the Centre de Recherche des Cordeliers in Paris (France, INSERM UMRS 872) where his main interests are the mechanisms of ion transport in renal epithelium. More particularly, these last years he focused on the mechanisms of renal adaptation to gender and reproductive status in terms of Na+ and K+ homeostasis and the new regulatory mechanisms of the potassium balance involving the adrenal production of progesterone.
