Jerôme Chevalier, a 44-year old academic and researcher, has been directing the material science and engineering laboratory (Matériaux: ingénierie et science) since 2014. He is an internationally renowned specialist in the design of innovative ceramics, and bioceramics. He conceived major improvements that increase the useful life of orthopaedic and orthodontic products and devices in ceramics. He also designed new compounds used in surgery for the replacement of bone tissues and as substrates for tissue regeneration. As a laureate of the 2015 CNRS Innovation Medal, Jérôme Chevalier takes a look back on his career with research ranging from biomedical applications to aerospace in the development of zero-expansion materials for the manufacture of spatial mirrors and catalysts for the oil industry.
