About the KOLs
Gerald V. Denis, PhD is a molecular oncologist with expertise in chromatin control of transcription, including in cellular components of the microenvironment of breast and prostate cancers. He pioneered studies of the BET bromodomain proteins, a family comprised of BRD2, BRD3 and BRD4 in somatic cells, which are important as transcriptional co-regulators, and he is considered one of the foremost thought leaders in the field of BET proteins. Dr. Denis was the first to report a function for a BET protein and link their activity to human cancer, by demonstrating that BRD2 activity is elevated in human acute leukemias. His research has identified the critical roles of BET proteins in the control of pro-inflammatory cytokine genes. The BET protein field has grown from sixteen papers, when he first published his work, to over 1,600 to date. His current work investigates how BET bromodomain proteins regulate abnormal metabolism, inflammation and cancer progression. As a key opinion leader, he designs, convenes, and chairs an annual symposium at meetings of the American Association of Immunologists, now in its 8th year, focused on tumor immunology, inflammation and metabolism.
Thierry Passeron, MD, PhD is Professor and Chair of Dermatology at the University Hospital of Nice. He also heads the Laboratory INSERM U1065 team 12, C3M, in France which is dedicated to the study of molecular mechanisms involved in pigmentation and melanoma. Dr. Passeron heads the University Laser Center in Nice, and is also president of the Department of Clinical Research and Innovation at the University Hospital of Nice, as well as Vice President of Côte d’Azur University. He has 12 international patents and more than 290 publications in scientific journals (h-index 52). He is the co-founder of YUKIN therapeutics and is a member of the medical advisory board for the Global Vitiligo Foundation. His fields of research include pigmentary disorders (including vitiligo and melasma), melanoma, hidradenitis suppurativa, alopecia areata and lasers.
