Maryline Magnin-Robert was born in Mulhouse in 1978. She obtained her PhD in Organismal Biology in 2007 from the University of Reims Champagne Ardenne (URCA), where her research focused on the development of alternatives to the use of sanitary products to combat Botrytis cinerea in vines, in particular through the use of bacteria from Champagne vineyards. After a 5-year post-doctorate at URCA on the impact of wood diseases on vine physiology, she was appointed Assistant Professor at the Université du Littoral – Côte d’Opale in September 2014.

She has expertise in the response of plants in interaction with pathogenic or non-pathogenic organisms, and has joined the IPCR – Calais site to strengthen the characterisation of defence mechanisms induced in wheat in response to the application of plant defence stimulators (PDS) or beneficial organisms (PGPR, mycorrhizal fungi) and inducing protection against powdery mildew and/or septoria in wheat.
