Frédéric Biemar, PhD

Frédéric Biemar, PhD, provides support and oversight for all international initiatives at the AACR. Prior to joining the organization, Biemar was an assistant professor of biology at Temple University in Philadelphia. His research focused on the molecular mechanisms governing pancreas development in zebrafish. At Temple, he taught both undergraduate and graduate level courses on topics ranging from developmental biology to genetics, genomics, and epigenetics. Biemar holds bachelor's and doctorate degrees from the Université de Liège in Belgium, where he trained in the fields of molecular, cell, and developmental biology. Prior to joining Temple University, Biemar was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, where he studied the role of non-coding RNA during embryonic development in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster.
