Dr Padilla was trained in physics and electrical engineering (MSc in Physics, PhD in Physical Acoustics, University of Paris-7; Electrical Engineering degree, Supelec, France). He obtained his PhD in 1998 and then joined the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) where he is under a tenure position as Research Scientist (Associate Prof.). He is a Fulbright Fellow, and has been a visiting faculty in Boston University (2008) and a visiting professor at the University of Michigan (2009-2011). He is currently a Merkin Fellow with the FUS Foundation and a visiting professor in the department of Radiation Oncology of the  University of Virginia School of Medicine.

His research agenda currently focuses on 1) Activation of anti-cancer immune response by therapeutic ultrasound; 2); Ultrasound molecular imaging of cancer and 3) Ultrasound cell assembly for tissue engineering.
