Cyril Bontemps is a lecturer at the University of Lorraine. A microbial ecologist by training, he currently works in the DynAMic laboratory, whose research focuses on the dynamics of genomes and the adaptation of microbes to their environment. His work aims to understand the evolution and the functioning of rhizosphere bacterial populations, as well as their influences on the plant and other microbial actors in the rhizosphere via the production of specialised metabolites.
EUGENIO LLORENS VILARROCHA
My research is based on the characterization and validation of new resistance inducers in plants. I also expanded my training with predoctoral stays at the Valencian Agricultural Research Institute (Valencia, Spain), at the Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred (Florida, USA), and at the National Agricultural Research and Technology Institute (Madrid, Spain). As a postdoctoral researcher, I conduct research in the department of molecular biology and plant ecology at the University of Tel Aviv (Israel) to test the efficacy of endophytic fungi as inducers of resistance in plants. This work has developed two international patents. During this period, I participated as a researcher in 16 research projects, being the principal investigator of 3 of them.

Laure Mamy is Director of Research at the French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE) in the ECOSYS Joint Research Unit (France). Her research mostly focuses on the study and on the modelling of the fate of pesticides (conventional, biocontrol) in the environment. The second main topic of her research deals with quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) to predict the fate and ecotoxicological effects of organic compounds based on their molecular properties. In parallel, she is environmental fate expert for the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES). Through these activities, she developed several collaborations at the national and international levels (Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, USA…).
