Nutrition-Genetics-Environmental Risks) Institute of Medical Research (Pôle BMS) - University of Lorraine, France

Shyue-Fang Battaglia-Hsu received her Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, WI, USA). She then joined the Department of Physiology, participating in neuroscience research as an Electrophysiologist to study neurosecretion from the pituitary glands as a Postdoctoral Fellow. She moved to Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA, USA) in 1997 to study ion channels and their signaling. In 2000, she worked in the Medical School of the University of Saarland (Homburg, Germany) to study the calcium-regulated secretion from pancreatic acinar cells. Soon after that, Battaglia-Hsu moved to Nancy (France) to study the molecular mechanisms of vitamin B12 in brain. She is now an Associate Professor in the University of Lorraine (Nancy, France). Her current research focuses on the roles of micronutrient in diseases, in particular neurodegenerative diseases, metabolic diseases, and cancers. Her studies have shown that certain micronutrients such as vitamin B can affect cell physiology via posttranscriptional processes.
