logo-cv2.jpgPhilippe Regnault was born in Montargis (France) in 1968. He obtained his PhD Biology, Diversity and Cultivated Plants Adaptations in 1996 at the University Paris 6 Pierre et Marie Curie. In 1998 he became Assistant Professor at the University of the Littoral Cote d’ Opale, where he participated in the research theme on the induction of resistance against foliar fungal pests in wheat.

In 2002, he supports his HDR entitled « Mechanisms related to the interactions between plants and plant pathogens: Pathogenicity and degradation of pectin; innate resistance and acquired resistance in plants. «  He directs the Laboratory of Mycology, Phytopathology and Environment (LMPE) from 2009 to 2010, when the LMPE joins two other laboratories ULCO to form UCEIV (EA 4492). In 2010, he was promotes Professor and head of the team « Interactions PlantesMushroom and Remediation » (7 EC, 2 IR, 1 TECH).

Its research concerne the induction of resistance to biotic fungal stress in plants (stimulation defenses during the interaction between wheat and Blumeria graminis f.sp. tritici or Mycosphaerella graminicola) by physiological approaches, Cytological and molecular and study of the impact on lipid metabolism. He also studied the genetic diversity of populations of Mycosphaerella graminicola, agent of septoria wheat by molecular typing (microsatellite markers, PCR-SSCP).
