Molecules to regenerate the skin

Patricia Rousselle, a specialist in skin healing and regeneration, is one of four winners of the CNRS Innovation Medal 2023. Created some ten years ago, this award highlights the transfer of outstanding innovations from public research to the marketplace. It illustrates the diversity of ways in which it is possible to add value to a product, while at the same time pursuing high-quality research.

CNRS Research Director, Tissue Biology and Therapeutic Engineering Laboratory1Patricia Rousselle studies the dialogue between cells, both dermal and epidermal, and the proteins present in their microenvironment. Her work has led her to develop treatments for burn victims, post-surgical healing and tumors affecting the skin.

Patricia Rousselle has synthesized numerous bio-inspired molecules, representing eleven patents, which have aroused great interest in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. She has worked in close collaboration with Dior, Chanel, Symatèse, 3-D Matrix, Native, Nagase and Laboratoires d'Anjou. A molecule of her own creation, for example, is at the heart of the Cébélia range of balms, renowned for their skin repair, regeneration and rejuvenation action.
