Dr. Corinne GriguerAssociate Professor

Areas of Interest
brain tumors, malignant glioma


Dr. Griguer obtained B.S. (Cellular and Molecular Biology), M.Sc. (Embryology and Cellular Development) and Ph.D. (Neurobiology and Cellular and Molecular Biology) degrees at the University of Montpellier (France), in 1993. Following postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Colorado Medical Center and University of Washington, she worked in biotechnologies from 1999 to 2002. In 2005, she was appointed to the Department of Surgery as Instructor and in 2008, as Assistant Professor. Dr. Griguer's research interests center on bioenergetics pathways involved in the development and progression of malignant glioma, and translating findings from "benchtop" to bedside. Two main topics are studied in her laboratory: the role of mitochondrial bioenergetics in chemoresistance and the role of mitochondria in stem cells biology. Her laboratory has developed unique cellular and molecular biological assays applied to mitochondria from human glioma biopsies.
