Attilio Di Pietro is a Group leader at CNRS Institute of Protein Biology and Chemistry, University of Lyon-Gerland, France

Attilio Di Pietro is heading a group entitled “Drug resistance mechanism and modulation” at the Institute of Protein Biology and Chemistry (IBCP) of Lyon, supported by the National Center for Scientifi c Research (CNRS) and the University of Lyon. He got a Doctorat d’Etat ès-Sciences from the University of Lyon, at Villeurbanne in 1981, on mitochondrial bioenergetics, and spent a Post-doctoral training with Prof. André Goffeau at the University of Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium, in 1982-83 on yeast plasma membrane transporters. He became independent in 1992 in studying membrane ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters involved in multidrug resistance, especially in cancercells. He chaired a Gordon Research Conference on “Multidrug Effl ux Systems” in Oxford, UK, in August 2005, and is organizing the annual French-Belgian meeting on ABC transporters since 2006. He has published around 140 papers in international journals, and deposited several patents. He has given around 70 invited talks to international meetings in the fi elds of drug discovery and mechanism of cancer cell multidrug resistance. In 2009, his group got Certifi cation by the French National League against Cancer.
