Lucie SAUZEATChargé de Recherche
After studying geology and specializing in isotope geochemistry, my research focused on the quantification of chemical and isotopic variability in various samples (rocks, plants, organic tissues) in order to better understand a range of geological, environmental and biological processes. This evolution of thematic, from the deep Earth to living organisms, allowed me to acquire interdisciplinary knowledges and to develop robust skills in isotope geochemistry that I currently put to the benefit of human health.
My current research interests are deeply integrated in a sustainability science approach and lie at the interface between human health and environmental risks. Briefly, my work consists in identifying and quantifying metallomic and physiological deregulations induced by long-term exposure to natural environmental pollutants (mainly metal-rich volcanic particles) at the entire body-scale; which can over time represent a significant health hazard for human health.
To address this major health hazard, I use a systemic approach combining in-vivo biological experiments performed on mice with innovative isotope analyses coupled with histological, metabolomic, proteomic and transcriptomic measurements.
