Christophe Guilluy

Asst Professor

CVM Research Building 252


After graduating from the Veterinary School of Nantes, Dr Guilluy completed his PhD under the supervision of Pierre Pacaud and Gervaise Loirand at the University of Nantes, where he identified key signaling molecules that control contractility in smooth muscle cells and play a role in vascular diseases. He then performed his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Keith Burridge at UNC Chapel Hill and investigated how mechanical tension regulates cytoskeletal organization and nuclear functions. Before he joined North Carolina State University, Dr Guilluy led his research team at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences (Inserm – France), where he began studying how nuclear structure and dynamics control cellular processes in physiology and diseases.
