Director: Pierre-Yves Scarabin

Marianne Canonico, biologist and endocrinologist obtained her PhD thesis at  the University Paris XI and then followed an additional training on epidemiology and clinical research.

 

In 2004, she joined the team "Hormones et Cardiovascular Disease" (Pierre-Yves Scarabin) within of the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) Units U258 and 780.

 

In 2008, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the "Cancer Epidemiology Unit" (Valérie Béral) of the Oxford University. In 2009, she was recruited at the Inserm as a Research Associate in the  "Hormones and Cardiovascular Disease" team within the UMR-S 1018 "Center for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health".

 

Her research area focuses on the hormonal determinants of cardiovascular disease among women.

 

Marianne Canonico took an important part in investigating the impact of postmenopausal hormone replacement  therapy on the risk venous thromboembolism in several epidemiological studies. she now expands her research to arterail disease by investigating the role of postmenopausal hormone therapy on stroke risk from Health Insurance database. She also studies the impact of endogenous sex steroid hormones on arterial ischemic disease among women in the elderly taking into account the hormones genetic variability.

 

International collaborations (Million women Study, Oxford University, UK and women's Health Initiative, USA) make it possible to investigate hormonal determinants of cardiovascular disease in large studies.
