Olivier Buriez is a Molecular Electrochemist. During his PhD, performed under the supervision of Drs Christian Amatore & Jean-Noël Verpeaux (ENS-Paris), he addressed the reactivity of organometallic complexes activated by electron transfer. Then, he joined the groups of J.B. Kerr and R.H. Fish at the Berkeley Lab. (LBNL, Univ. of California, USA) to investigate the structure-activity relationships and mechanistic aspects of bioorganometallic compounds. In 1999, he obtained a CNRS permanent position in the group of J. Périchon (LECSO lab.) where he used electrochemistry to understand mechanisms involved in metal-catalyzed electro-reductive processes. In 2006, he moved back to ENS to address the reactivity and transport issues related to biological molecules. Since 2015, he’s Officer of the Molecular Electrochemistry Division of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE).

Our ambition is to bring new insights and new entries in major issues such as the metabolism (i.e., the chemical transformations) and the distribution (i.e., the transmembrane passages) of molecules possessing therapeutic properties through lipid membranes. Within this context, we adapt our electrochemical procedures to the experimental constraints of the phenomena investigated rather than adapting the phenomena to our methods. Combining electrochemistry and fluorescence microscopy is a typical example of this guideline.
