Fabrice Bureau is Ordinary Professor. Holder of two university degrees, a degree in biology obtained at the UMons and a doctorate in veterinary medicine obtained at the ULiège, Fabrice Bureau practiced veterinary medicine for two years before starting a thesis in the laboratory of Pr Pierre Lekeux to study asthma in horses. After several post-doctoral stays, notably in France, to perfect his knowledge of asthma, Fabrice Bureau returned to the University of Liège in 2005. Professor at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine where he teaches biochemistry, he is part of the interdisciplinary research center GIGA where he created the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Immunology and where he directed the Thematic Research Unit GIGA-inflammation, Infection and Immunity.

Fabrice Bureau is the author of more than 150 publications (H-index 40 in 2020) mainly on the regulation of immune responses in the respiratory mucosa. He received the AstraZeneca Asthma & COPD award in 2006 and is a full member of the Royal Belgian Academy of Medicine since 2015. Fabrice Bureau and his colleagues at the GIGA, FARAH and GreenMat research centers have played a key role in the development of an automated method for testing for Sars-Cov-2, in securing the supply of reagents needed to perform these tests, and in the development of a salivary self-sampling kit designed to enable mass screening of the virus in the active population.
