Pierre-Yves Desprez, Ph.D., Senior Scientist
Liliana Soroceanu, Sean McAllister and Pierre-Yves Desprez, in Cancer Research 2013 and showing the effects of targeting Id-1 (either by genetic knockdown or by using a cannabinoid compound) on the behavior of aggressive cancer cells.
Dr. Desprez and his colleagues found that Id genes and proteins not only correlate with but also determine the level of aggressiveness of human breast and prostate cancer cells, and that Id-1 regulates multiple tumor-promoting pathways in brain cancer (glioblastoma). In collaboration with CPMCRI scientist Dr. Sean McAllister, recent investigations by Dr. Desprez have determined that cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid with a low toxicity profile, inhibits human cancer cell proliferation and invasion through differential modulation of specific pathways, and down-regulates Id-1 gene expression.
Dr. Desprez is among a group of investigators leading cancer research at CPMCRI.
Before joining CPMCRI, Dr. Desprez completed his Ph.D. at the University of Lyon in France, and worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratories of Drs.
