Laboratoire Pôle de chimie physique et biologique de la matière vivante

Physical and Biological Chemistry of Living Matter is a pluridisciplinary group of the PASTEUR laboratory of the Chemistry Department at ENS, which integrates members with expertise in analytical chemistry, biophysics, electrochemistry, fluorescence imaging, photophysics and photochemistry, preparative chemistry (organic molecules and polymers), and soft matter. Our projects are currently organized along two research axes: (i) Control and analysis of the dynamics of biomolecules involved in networks of chemical reactions and interactions, up to in vivo. To reach this goal, we are developing molecular and instrumental tools for triggering (bio)molecules (with light, electrons, temperature, or magnetic field) and for recording the response at the molecular scale, even in the complex environment of a living cell; (ii) Bio-assisted chemistry. Our projects harness micro-organisms, as living factories, implementing chemically-educated choice of reactants, analytical tools, and biomolecule engineering, to create novel objects and functionalities.
