Brief presentation of the institution

Our group belongs to the CNRS and the University of Lorraine. We are located in Nancy suburbs, a beautifull town of the East of France, within 1.30H from Paris by train.

We are a team of theorists whom expertise ranges from theoretical physics of collisions to biophysical simulation of biological membranes via quantum chemistry and molecular modeling. Our work consists in developing new theories to extract explanatory models and to perform numerical simulations focussing on three themes:

-> Radiation-Molecule Interactions

-> Intermolecular Interactions (Liquid)

-> Biomolecular Interactions

We are founders and members of the European Associated Laboratory on the Application of electric pulses in Biology and Medicine (LEA EBAM, gathering 6 laboratories in France and Slovenia), and members of the International Bioelectrics Consortium (gathering 11 laboratories around the world).

Main Electroporation related topics

We study all aspects of the molecualr level characterization of the effects of electric fields on model membranes, proteins and solvent.

These include but are not limited to electroporation of membranes, transport of small molecules, chemical reactions and protein unfolding.

 

Main Electroporation related research techniques and equipment

Our group expertise in modeling covers all state of the art quantum and classical simulations.

we use both local computer ressources, regional computer centers as well as research infrastructures at national, and europeen supercomputer centers.

Research topics, techniques and equipment not related to Electroporation

- Radiation-matter interaction ( Collisions, excited states , photosensitive dyes, ...)

- Intermolecular interactions (liquid state) (fundamental spects) 

- Biomolecular interactions (Enzymatic catalysis, protonation states, radiobiology)
