Presentation

y main scientific activity focuses on two themes linking **Sport and Health**. On the one hand, I'm interested in the **development of cardiovascular and respiratory pathologies in endurance** athletes, in relation to their environment. More specifically, I'm interested in the respective effects of chlorine, but also pollution, and ventilation modality (type and modality of exercise) on bronchial epithelial damage, notably through the measurement of pneumoproteins (CC16, SP-D). The aim of this research is to understand the development of "exercise-induced asthma" in endurance athletes, and its consequences on respiratory health and performance, particularly in elite swimmers and cyclists. We are currreently developing methodologies to asssess the inhaled dose of polluatnts and their effects on health of athletes. I'm also interested in the **benefits of physical activity in patients with various respiratory pathologies (Asthma, BCPO, PID)** and their modalities (thesis student and numerous APAS professional masters supervised on this theme). Although asthma is the main model for my studies, enabling me to study the benefits of sport for asthmatics and understand the development of respiratory problems in athletes, I am also interested in other pathologies, and am aware of multipathologies where one of the common points is inflammation (asthma and obesity, asthma and diabetes...) and of people who "respond poorly" to training programs.
Mon activité scientifique principale est axée sur deux thématiques liant **Sport et Santé**. D’un côté je m’intéresse au **développement de pathologies cardiovasculaires et respiratoires chez les sportifs** **d’endurance**, en lien avec leur environnement. Je m’intéresse plus particulièrement, aux effets respectifs du chlore, mais aussi de la pollution, et de la modalité de ventilation (type et modalité d’exercice) sur les dommages épithéliaux bronchiques au travers de la mesure des pneumoprotéïnes (CC16, SP-D), notamment. L’objectif de ces recherches est de comprendre le développement de “l’asthme d‘effort” chez les sportifs d’endurance, et ses conséquences sur la santé respiratoire et la performance, plus particulièrement chez les nageurs et cyclistes élites. Je m’intéresse également aux **bienfaits de l’activité physique chez les patients atteints de diversers pathologies respiratoires (Asthme, BCPO, PID)** et à leurs modalités (étudiant en thèse et nombreux master professionnels APAS encadrés sur cette thématique). Si l’asthme est le modèle principal de mes études qui me permet d’étudier les bienfaits du sport chez les asthmatiques et comprendre le développement des problèmes respiratoires chez les sportifs, je m’intéresse également à d’autres pathologies, et suis sensibilisée aux multipathologies dont l’un des points communs est l’inflammation (asthme et obésité, asthme et diabète...) et aux personnes “peu répondantes” aux programmes d’entraînement.
