Loic P. Deleyrolle, PhD
Loic P. Deleyrolle is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Florida. He is also an Adjunct Faculty Member in the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Florida. Dr. Deleyrolle was born and raised in France, where he received a B.S. and M.S. from the University of Grenoble, France in 2001. He completed his Ph.D. in 2006 at the Institute for Neuroscience of the University of Montpellier in France.
His work focused on investigating the molecular pathways regulating proliferation and differentiation of spinal cord stem cells. Dr. Deleyrolle then completed post-doctoral fellowships in 2011 at the Queensland Brain Institute of the University of Queensland, Australia and the McKnight Brain Institute of the University of Florida where he focused on developing and enabling innovative technologies to identify and measure stem cell and cancer stem cell activities.
In 2016, Dr. Deleyrolle joined the Preston A. Wells, Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy at the University of Florida as a principal investigator and his work focuses on investigating cancer stem cell biology in brain tumors and exploring novel treatment strategies targeting cancer stem cells. Projects in his research group involve understanding the metabolic and immunologic characteristics of cancer stem cells with the goal of identifying unique pathways for therapeutic development.
