Emilie Distel is a senior post-doctoral fellow. She works on the effects of pollutant mixtures on cellular metabolism within the European consortium HEALS (Health and Environment-wide Associations based on Large population Surveys).

Emilie obtained her PhD in Cellular and molecular endocrinology at the University Paris Descartes (2009). During her first post-doctoral fellowship at New York University (NYU) School of Medicine (New York, USA), she found that the deleterious effects of diabetes on atherosclerosis regression could be overcome by inhibition of miR33 by affecting plaque macrophages and myeloproliferation. Now having returnedto France, she is working as a senior post-doctoral fellow on the European HEALS project which has as one of its focuses the study of the exposome of European populations as related to environmental pollutants. Using epidemiological data as a basis, she investigates the consequences of exposure to pollutant mixtures on cellular metabolismin human cell culture model ksystems.
