Dominique Delmas is currently full professor in Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Bourgogne (France). He exercises the function of Deputy Director of the Inserm Research Center Unit U1231 “Lipids, Nutrition, Cancers” in Dijon where he manages a research group entitled “Bioactive Molecules and Health” within the Inserm team “Cancer and Adaptive Immune Response”. He received his PhD. on December 16th, 2002 concerning the potential antitumor effects of polyphenols among them resveratrol. In 2009, he obtained his Research Management Habilitation and was rewarded four times by the French Research Ministry with the Scientific Excellence Price. The main research objectives of his group are to develop and to coordinate multidisciplinary and translational research from laboratory to clinical applications, including 1) the determination of early biomarkers in response to treatment; 2) the identification of new potential targets and the development of new therapeutic strategies by the use of molecules with low toxicity with a special attention on polyphenols. Due to the experience acquired in the field of natural substances and their implications in biology, he is an expert for many national and international organizations and member of the editorial board of several scientific journals (PLOS One, ACAMC, Nutrients, ROS journals). He has authored or coauthored over 100 original papers and comprehensive reviews on polyphenols health effects. He has also contributed to over 20 books chapters concerning the molecular mechanisms of polyphenols in tumoral cells and 118 international communications.
