Dr. Christophe Cataisson received a MS diploma in cellular biology and physiology from University Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France in 1995. He then moved to University of Jussieu, Paris, France where he received his Ph.D. in December 2000 for his work on the regulation and function of the Parathyroid Hormone related Peptide (PTHrP) gene in human mammary cancer cells. In 2001, he joined the laboratory of Dr. Yuspa as a visiting fellow to receive his post-doctoral training.


Dr. Cataisson's research expertise is centered on two interrelated areas. He uses mouse models to define pathways contributing to skin inflammation with special emphasis on the chemokine family binding CXCR2. In other studies, he is investigating the role of inflammation in the tumor microenvironment using epidermal squamous carcinoma as a model.
