Speaker Frédéric Raymond
Frédéric Raymond is both a microbiologist and a bioinformatician. His research aims to integrate the study of the microbiome, the molecules it produces, and the interaction of microorganisms with the human body, particularly in the context of the endocannabinoid system and metabolic health. He combines genomic approaches with artificial intelligence to gain a better understanding of these complex systems. Frédéric Raymond earned his Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from Université Laval in 2002, his Master’s degree in Microbiology-Immunology in 2004, and his Ph.D. in Physiology-Endocrinology in 2011. His postdoctoral work shed light on key factors influencing the impact of antibiotics on the microbiome, demonstrating that the initial microbial flora dramatically affects the antibiotic’s impact on the microbiome. Since 2018, Frédéric Raymond has held the position of Associate Professor at the School of Nutrition at Université Laval. He is a researcher at the Centre NUTRISS and is also a member of the Institute of Nutrition and Functional Foods (INAF) and the Institute Intelligence and Data (IID).
