Dr. Moreau obtained her PhD in Biochemistry from the Université of Paris V René Descartes. After focusing on protein structure and function during her doctoral training, she expanded her interests to the study of small molecule signaling in the context of plant-pathogen interactions at Cornell University and the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research in Ithaca, NY. Her breadth of expertise includes molecular biology, innate immunity signaling, structural biology and microbiology.
In 2014, Magali joined L’Oréal USA’s Open Research Department with the goals of leveraging North American scientific excellence in green chemistry and synthetic biology and strengthening the company’s commitments to sustainability.
For the past four years, she has honed her research capacities in biotechnology, placing particular emphasis on the realm of microbiome science. She has collaborated with key academic leaders such as the Center for Microbiome Innovation at UCSD to strengthen the science of this emerging field and has also promoted partnerships with startup ventures seeking to bring novel and efficacious solutions to market. Magali’s research projects have contributed to knowledge and testing of concept for malodor, acne, sensitive skin and cleansing. For North America, Magali leads all initiatives on microbiome and globally for microbiome applications in compromised skin conditions.
