Membrane Protein Biochemistry Lab

Biochimie des Protéines Membranaires

Our laboratory gathers biologists, physicists and chemists who are interested in the structure, structural dynamics and physical chemistry of membrane proteins, either in membrane mimetic systems (liposomes or nanodiscs), or in classical detergent solutions or alternative surfactants such as amphipols.

Following the footsteps of Jean Perrin who created the institute together with Baron Edmond de Rothschild, we develop fundamental, interdisciplinary research for health and environment.

Our research themes

Research within the laboratory is organized in four main themes.

Bioenergetics

FP-DYNAMO-PARIS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME

In our laboratory, there are 4 fellowship post-doctorants.

This project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (grant agreement No 101034407).

Facts and Figures

Research is a collective adventure where cohesion of the team is essential. We foster social activities to stimulate exchange of expertise, mentoring and synergies between research topics. Social life around the Institute is highly attractive for students and early researchers.
