MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine, Oncology, University Paris Descartes, Hopital Européen Georges Pompidou is head of the Inserm (the French National Institute of Medical Research) laboratory, “Functional genomic of solid tumors” in Paris, France. She received her M.D. and PhD from the Paris 7 University. She received her training in Internal Medicine and Oncology during her residency at the Paris hospitals. She was a doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Pr. Gilles Thomas at the Curie Institute identifying the genes rearranged by chromosome translocation in Ewing’s tumors. Specialist in genetic and transcriptome classification of benign and malignant hepatocellular tumors, Jessica Zucman-Rossi’s team works to identify new carcinogenetic pathways altered in HCC and benign hepatocellular tumors using a genomic strategy based on the study of large series of human tumors. Recently, the team has significantly contributed to improve our knowledge of tumors’ molecular classification using global genetic and transcriptomic approaches. Jessica Zucman-Rossi serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Hepatology and she member of the editorial board of Hepatology. She has co-authored more than 80 original articles and over 20 editorials, reviews and book chapters. She is also serving as a journal referee of more than 20 peer review international journals.
