Xavier Coumoul

Professor in Biochemistry and Toxicology, Université Paris Cité

I am a Professor of Toxicology, Biochemistry and Cell Signaling at Université Paris Cité (former Université Paris Descartes). I have completed my PhD in molecular toxicology and a post-graduate year in Bethesda, MD. I am the head of a Master degrees in toxicology and ecotoxicology. My research is based on cellular and animal models and on three main axes: 1) the influence of persistent organic pollutants on breast tumorigenesis and metabolic disruption, 2) the contextual role of pollutants in the occurrence of chronic liver diseases including steatosis and fibrosis, 3) the effect of mixtures on the progression of neurodegenerative diseases. I am involved in the development of innovative pedagogy methods and technics in order to improve transmission, acquisition, memorization and utilization of scientific knowledge by our biomedical students. I used flipped classrooms, quizzes (at home and during courses) and virtual reality to interact and immerge with students in and outside the classroom. Indeed, I developed with pedagogic engineers, 1) Home-based 45’’ Quizzes to engage students in regular learning modes and 2) serious games on cell signaling and xenobiotic stress. Together, with Etienne Blanc, Caroline Chauvet and Frédéric Dardel, I wrote several French books of biochemistry and toxicology topics for undergraduate students. I collaborate with several national and international institutes and universities (CNAM Thierry KOSCIELNIAK, Université de Strasbourg Jean-Luc SOUCIET, National University of Singapore, Fun Man FUNG...) for the development of innovative methods in teaching.

HDBMB Young Scientists' Forum

Junior section, HDBMB - Croatian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

HDBMB Young Scientists' Forum (HDBMB YSF) is the Junior Section of the Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (HDBMB). It was set up in 2020 to support the career development and networking opportunities of students and young researchers in the molecular life sciences in Croatia. The HDBMB YSF organise and deliver their own activities, under the supervision of their Society and all members of the HDBMB YSF are members of the HDBMB. HDBMB YSF are also part of the FEBS Junior Sections. To find out more about the HDBMB YSF read their overview post and check out the online talks and other activities they deliver, accesible from the 'Popular contributions' section below.
