Dr. François Marceau has been studying bradykinin receptors for over 30 years, their regulation, ligands and functions. Notably, as early as in the 1980s, the regulation of B1 receptor expression by cytokines and immunopathology was highlighted, with work replicated and expanded around the world. He has been part of an international committee on the nomenclature of bradykinin receptors, leading to a review article cited over 800 times, of which he is a co-author (Pharmacol Rev. 2005; 57: 27). More recently, two subjects have caught the attention of the laboratory, i.e. the creation of bifunctional biotechnological ligands for peptide hormone receptors, including those of bradykinin, and the angioedema states, presently the main clinical application of bradykinin. Dr. Marceau has been, and is, regularly invited as a speaker at specialized conferences.
