Our lab is located at the  Laboratoire de Physique Statistique Department of  Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris. Our research revolves around lipid storage and utilization mechanisms. We aim to understand the fate of lipids in cells, from the physical chemistry to physiological spectrum. We develop biophysical approaches based on droplet microfluidics and physical chemistry, and collaborate with biologists, physiologists and medical doctors all around the world.

       We especially study the formation of cellular lipid droplets, organelles at the core of cellular metabolism, and the specific binding of proteins to their surface. We combine in vitro emulsion approaches and cell biology to tackle these topics.

          We also develop microfluidics tools for high throughput screenings of the activity of membrane-bound proteins.
