Dr Michot obtained his Master degree in pharmacology and his PhD degree in neuroscience from the
University Paris Descartes in France. He has been investigating peripheral and central inflammatory
processes in animal models of trigeminal neuropathic and inflammatory pain. Dr Michot’s current
research in Harvard School of Dental Medicine in Boston focuses on the physiopathology of pulpitis
using behavioral test, immunohistochemistry and live cell imaging techniques. He is investigating the
molecular mechanisms by which bacterial toxins activate and sensitize trigeminal neurons in dental
pulp inflammation and how sensory neurons influence dental pulp healing and regeneration.
