Welcome

Aksi lene tchi diamb

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 in cells. We develop biophysical approaches based on droplet microfluidics and physical chemistry.

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 address these topics.

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