Marie A. Brunet

Marie A Brunet is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Biochemistry Department, University of Sherbrooke, Canada. She completed her Veterinary Medicine Doctorate at the National Veterinary School of Alfort (ENVA), Paris, France; and her Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge, UK.

During her training, Dr. Brunet became passionate about the genomic and proteomic complexities in Eukaryotes as they pertain to Health and Diseases. As a Ph.D. student (2011-2015), she looked at protein evolution to gather functional and structural insights, with a focus on the P2X7 receptor. Since graduating, she is a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Xavier Roucou lab, where she explores the limits of current genome annotations and its consequences for our vision of the proteome and the aetiology of pathologies. She works with multidisciplinary teams and keep a focus on neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.

Dr. Brunet received a National Silver Medal for her veterinary medicine thesis (2012) and a Gates Cambridge scholarship (2011-2015) for her Ph.D.
