Véronique Migonney received an Engineer Diploma in Materials Sciences (1981), a Master in Biomedical and Biomaterials Engineering (1982) and a PhD (1986) in Chemistry (Doctorat d’Etat Es Sciences Physiques spécialité Chimie – supervisor M. Jozefowicz) from University Paris 13th. Véronique Migonney was director of the laboratory CSPBAT UMR 7244 CNRS UP13 from 2009 to 2016 and heads the team LBPS devoted to Biomaterials Sciences from 2002. She set up and headed the Master of Chemistry and Health Engineering from 2004 to 2016. Véronique Migonney is Fellow of the International College of Fellows in Biomaterials Science and Engineering for her contribution to the functionalization of biomaterials surfaces. She was president of the French Society for Biomedical Engineering 2011-2013 and she is vice-president of the AGBM (Alliance pour le Génie Biologique et Médical). Her expertise is focused on biomaterials science: she is working for > 40 years in the field of bioactive polymers synthesis and grafting to functionalize biomaterials surfaces with the aim of controlling the host response.
