Claudine Blin is research director and head of the team “Osteoimmunology, Niches and Inflammation” at the Laboratory of Molecular Physiomedicine, Nice, France. She obtained her PhD from the University Paris Diderot in 1995. In 2003, she established her independent research group on osteoimmunology in Nice. Her team projects are at the interface between osteology, immunology and stem cell biology, mostly in the context of chronic inflammatory diseases. She has a special interest in the heterogeneity and innate immune function of osteoclasts, their interaction with immune cells, and their contribution in inflammatory bone destruction. Claudine Blin has been secretary and is president elect of the French Society of Mineral Tissue Biology (SFBTM) and member of the ECTS Board of Directors. She is also a member of the scientific board of the French Arthritis Fondation and a member of the scientific and educational committee of the Life University School of Research, University Cote d’Azur.
