Fabrice Rébeillé is a research director at the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (CEA), Grenoble, France, in the laboratory of Physiologie Cellulaire Végétale. He graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy of Grenoble in 1978 and completed a PhD in 1983. He was recruited by the CEA in 1983. In 1984-1985 he joined as a post-doc fellow the Marshall D. Hatch laboratory at CSIRO, Canberra, Australia. From 1995 to 2000, he was Professor of biochemistry at the University of Grenoble. His domains of expertise are about plant cell metabolism, including respiration, photosynthesis and photorespiration, biosynthesis of vitamins and more recently lipid metabolism.
