Jessica earned her PhD in physiology, physiopatholgy and pharmacology at Université Grenoble Alpes in 2017. During those years, she used different devices and models (intermittent hypoxia, ex vivo and in vivo myocardial ischemia-reperfusion) inducing cardiovascular injuries such as hypertension, myocardial infarction, ventricular arrhythmias… She worked in particular on acute and chronic cardioprotection by using several types of compounds like antioxidants, pharmacologic agents or also trace elements.
Since her arrival at SYNCROSOME in 2018 as study director, she has contributed to develop the cardiovascular division, in particular with acute model of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion protocols, infarct size evaluation procedures or catheter implantations.
She is also in charge of the metabolic and renal department development and has initiated the use of diabetic disease models such as db/db and ob/ob mice (glycaemia, glucose and insulin tolerance, HOMA index, …) or cardiorenal failure model with Dahl SS rat strain (hypertension, renal failure, diastolic dysfunction, …).
By her knowledge in physiology and her experience, she will accompany you in your projects, from classic to customized disease models. Hence, if you need an “unusual” study design or model, do not hesitate to contact us, Jessica will do her best to offer you solutions to meet your specific needs, as closely as possible.
When she’s not at SYNCROSOME, she likes to skate and play roller derby or hiking/get lost in the Calanques of Marseille.
