I'm the BIOSYS group leader hosted by the Institut des Sciences Analytiques. My research is currently dealing with the structural and dynamical study of biological systems by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and more particularly complex biomolecular assemblies. We are developing methodological tools to address biological questions, mainly centered on endocytosis. We also combine NMR with high performance computing based on the use of GPU hardware and molecular dynamics methods/free energy calculations. We have access to a biochemistry lab to prepare isotope labeled proteins. To achieve NMR and modeling studies, an ensemble of spectrometers operating at 400 to 1000MHz and several multiGPUs computers are available.
