Dr. Pierre Sicard is a research engineer at INSERM in Montpellier, France. He leads the ultrasound/photoacoustic platform in Montpellier (IPAM/INSERM/ Montpellier University). Dr. Sicard obtained in 2007, from the University of Burgundy, a PhD in Cardiovascular physiology. He studied the interplay between oxidative stress, hypertension and their consequences on the heart. In 2007, he joined the cardiovascular division at St Thomas’ Hospital (King’s College London, UK) as a postdoctoral fellow to investigate the importance of p38 MAPK isoforms during experimental myocardial infarction. He continued his research in the Institute of Metabolic and Cardiovascular Diseases in Toulouse (France) in order to develop a bench to bedside project about the potential contribution of Gadd45 proteins in post-myocardial infarction remodeling. His current research interests focused on the mechanism involved in multiple-organ dysfunction after right or left ventricular myocardial infarction.
