After 2 years of research on the physiology of prostaglandins production by the liver at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, USA, he was recruited as Professor of Physiology at the Medical School of Medicine Lyon-Nord (Université Lyon 1) in 1999, and developed an activity of clinical research on the use of stable isotopes and high resolution manometry in the field of functional digestive diseases diagnostic at Hôpital E. Herriot, Lyon, France.He was involved during 8 years (2008-2016) in the administrative management of this hospital. He is now head of the functional digestive diseases lab of this hospital, and member of LabTau where he collaborates for the development of new techniques for the measurement of the distensibility of the wall of digestive organs.
