Two Luminaries Join Cequent Scientific Advisory Board: Judy Lieberman, M.D. Ph.D., and Patrice Courvalin, M.D.
Date:10/6/2008

expert in translational medicine, and a pioneer in the therapeutic use of RNAi, particularly through the development of innovative delivery tools. The Lieberman laboratory at Harvard was the first to demonstrate that RNAi could be used to treat disease in an animal model. Dr. Lieberman and her colleagues are currently working to harness RNAi for use against HIV and other viruses and they have developed novel strategies for cell-specific targeting of small interfering RNAs to confer in vivo protection from viral disease. In related work, Dr. Lieberman's laboratory is also working in the emerging field of miRNAs by developing their potential as diagnostic and therapeutic tools.

Professor Patrice Courvalin, M.D., is head of the Antibacterial Agents Unit at the Institut Pasteur, Paris, France, where he directs the French National Reference Center for Antibiotics. He is an internationally recognized expert in the genetics and biochemistry of antibiotic resistance and in the transfer and heterologous expression of genetic information. He received master's degrees in sciences and in human biology from the University of Sciences in Paris and his doctorate in medical sciences from the Medical School in Paris. His research has led to a revision of the dogma describing natural dissemination of genes. In particular, he and his colleagues demonstrated that a wide variety of bacteria can promiscuously exchange genetic material and they proved that conjugation could account for dissemination of genes between phylogenetically remote bacterial genera. Because of his long-term interest in horizontal gene transfer among bacteria, Dr. Courvalin has been a thought leader in the area of using bacteria as intracellular vectors for delivery of DNA or proteins into mammalian cells. His laboratory was the first to describe the combination of invasin and listeriolysin to enable Escherichia coli as a gene therapy tool.
