Prof. Tessier received his Ph.D in analytical chemistry from the Institut National Agronomique de Paris in 1997. His doctoral research was in the area of the Maillard reaction, vitamin C and aging. Following his Ph.D., Prof. Tessier accepted a postdoctoral position with Prof. Monnier at Case Western Reserve University, and a few years later a position as scientist at the California Institute of Technology. In both American institutes, his research focused on the chemical discovery of new advanced glycation end-products in the human lens & cornea. After holding 2 other positions in the pharmaceutical industry, Prof. Tessier took up an academic position in 2003 as an Associate Professor in Analytical Chemistry and Nutrition, at the Institut UniLaSalle (France). Since October 1st 2015 Prof. Tessier has been appointed Professor at the Lille University School of Medicine. The first goal of his present research there is to understand how dietary advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) affect the chemical safety and the nutritional quality of heat-treated food, and how a chronic exposure to AGEs affects human health and longevity.
