Bertrand Léger

Head of the Medical Research and Quality Control Department at the Clinique romande de réadaptation (CRR SuvaCare), Switzerland

Graduated from the University of Geneva in 2003, Dr Léger completed his PhD in Science at the University of Lausanne in the department of physiology. His work focused on the molecular mechanisms controlling muscle mass in human models of atrophy or hypertrophy. A major part of his PhD was completed at the Clinique romande de réadaptation (CRR) in Sion, a leader in Switzerland in the field of rehabilitation. In 2008, Dr Léger joined the team of Prof Gordon Lynch from Melbourne University for a postdoctoral fellowship sponsored by the Swiss National Fund. At this time, Dr Léger mainly focused on the involvement of adrenergic receptor in the control of muscle mass. From 2010 Dr Léger held the position of scientific collaborator at the CRR before being appointed head of the research department in 2016.  From that time, Dr Léger developed studies in the field of chronic pain combining a biopsychosocial approach.
