Permanent researchers

Clotilde Policar

Trained in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, Clotilde Policar specialized in bio-inorganic chemistry. Professor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure—Paris Sciences et Lettres, since 2008, she has set up a group in bioinorganic chemistry and inorganic biological and cellular chemistry that works on the study of inorganic compounds in biological environments.

Nicolas Delsuc

Nicolas Delsuc has been trained in chemistry at Bordeaux University. During a PhD from 2004 to 2007 in supramolecular chemistry under the supervision of Dr. Ivan Huc, I worked on the development of proteomimetic structures using abiotic foldamers. I then obtained a fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS) to join the group of Prof. Itaru Hamachi at Kyoto University where I worked on new peptidyl receptors for peptide recognition. In 2009, I came back to France as temporary lecturer (ATER) at the Laboratoire des Biomolécules (LBM, UMR 7203), where I worked with Prof. Philippe Karoyan to develop foldamers based on proline derivatives. I have been appointed as CNRS researcher in 2010 and joined the group of Clotilde Policar at the LBM. I first worked on the conjugation of bioactive molecules with peptide to enhance their penetration and bioavaibality as well on the development of multimodal metal-based probes. Now I want to combine peptide and metal ions to synergistically take advantages of the properties of both classes of molecules by developing new peptidyl metalloprobes and metallodrugs.

Hélène Bertrand

Helene Bertrand is an associate professor at Sorbonne Université. Her main research activities concern the synthesis and evaluation of metal complexes for imaging and biological activities. She obtained her PhD in molecular chemistry at Université Pierre et Marie Curie (now Sorbonne Université) in 2008. Prior to joining the Laboratoire des Biomolécules as an assistant professor in 2011, she did her postdoctoral research studies at the School of Pharmacy (University College London, UK) and at Institut Européen de Chimie et Biologie (IECB, Institut des Sciences Moléculaires, Bordeaux, France).
