The group of Biophysical Chemistry at ENS Paris is interested in manipulating and understanding biological systems in new ways using the knowledge of chemistry. We develop in particular molecules and methods enabling to observe, manipulate or mimic biological targets or cellular processes in diverse systems (cell-free systems, microorganisms, mammalian cells, up to living organisms) using interdisciplinary approaches that combine molecular or polymer synthesis, analytical and physical chemistry, material engineering, biomolecule engineering, and biophysics. Current research projects include:

  • The engineering of microorganisms as cell factories to produce nanomaterials with innovative properties
