The authors (L to R) - Lionel Faure and Kent D. Chapman

Dr. Lionel Faure

Lionel Faure got his Master degree in plant biology in 2006 from the University of Medicine Victor Segalen and from the University of Sciences and Technologies of Bordeaux. Then, in 2009 he obtained his PhD in the Laboratory of Membrane Biogenesis (CNRS, UMR 5200) under the co-supervision of Dr Jean-Jacques Bessoule and Dr Denis Coulon. His PhD work focused on the characterization of a new acyltransferase in Arabidopsis thaliana. Since 2010 he is working as a Postdoctoral Fellow with Professor Kent D Chapman (University of North Texas) on the characterization of a new Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase (FAAH) in plants.

Prof. Kent D. Chapman

Kent Chapman received an A.B. degree in biology from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA. He earned a Ph.D. in Botany (Plant Cell Biology) with Richard N. Trelease in 1991 at Arizona State University, where he studied the acquisition of membrane lipids by enlarging oilseed glyoxysomes. From 1991-1993, Chapman was an NSF postdoctoral fellow with Thomas S. Moore, Jr. at Louisiana State University, where he began work on the biosynthesis of N-acylphosphatidylethanolamines. In 1993 he took a faculty position at the University of North Texas where he is currently Regents Professor in Biochemistry. His research interests remain in the area of N-acylethanolamines and lipid signaling, but also include the regulation of storage lipid metabolism and lipid droplet biogenesis in plants.
