Our credo-motto

The word of Clotilde Policar:

We are a group of chemists with complimentary  and extensive expertise in chemistry (organic synthesis from peptide chemistry to organometallic chemistry, inorganic synthesis, bio-inorganic chemistry, physical-chemistry, spectroscopies, imaging and cell-biology). We are interested by peforming inorganic chemistry in biological environments, the cell being our first playground.


Our credo: move ahead together and remain ourselves.


 ‘Simul et singulis’ could be our motto, as that from the theater troupe of the Comedie française: be together and ourselves.  Indeed, as in a theater troupe, we are the main character and a second role helping projects of others alternately. This is exemplified in our contracts list (see "research"). Join us for a bigger play!
