Francis Rodier trained as a microbiologist and obtained his Ph.D. in molecular biology exploring carcinogenesis at the Université de Montréal in 2005. He subsequently conducted postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in California where he developed interests in DNA repair signaling, oncology and aging, leading to the identification of a novel connection between DNA damage and inflammation.
