Short biography:

Marie-Pierre Moisan defended her PhD in 1992 at the university of Ediburgh, UK.  Her work was dedicated on the role of 11 beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in the brain, an enzyme regenerating glucocorticoids from their inactive metabolite. She then did her postdoctoral research at Duke university (USA) where she focused on SF-1, a transcription factor critical for steroidogenesis . She secured a researcher position at INRA in the laboratory INSERM of Prof. Le Moal (Bordeaux, France) in 1993 to develop a project on the genetics of stress responses. In 2005 she spent one year at the University of Queensland, Australia where she worked on the regulation of the growth hormone receptor in obesity. Since her return to Bordeaux, she has been working at the laboratory Nutrineuro (Bordeaux, France) where she developed several lines of research aimed at understanding the interaction between nutrition, glucocorticoids and memory or depression. She has developed experimental approaches in preclinical models ranging from molecular analyses to behavioral assessments as well as clinical studies focusing on molecular biomarkers related to the role of glucocorticoid hormones. She is currently a INRAe research director and she is the co-leader of the Nutripsy team at Nutrineuro.

My engagement with/interest in Open Science:

Open science is important to facilitate international cooperation as well as access of science data to everyone. I am using Oskar and HAL to give access to my publications. I ue a Data Management Plan for my project. I am participating in the Imagine Project which a project of international solidarity that promotes scientific inclusion and cultural exchange between peoples.
