10/13/2017: Organization of a round-table during the 5th Mediterranean
Young Researchers Days in Montpellier (France)
Dr. Gregory DURAND (Cofounder) animated this round table about the creation and operating of the labcom CHEMSTAB and emphasizing the importance of the collaboration between academics and private companies.
11/12/2018: Open positions in Avignon
CHEM2STAB is looking for:
- • a project leader in organic synthesis (Job notice [pdf])
- • an intern in chemistry for the synthesis of amphiphilic molecules (Job notice [pdf])
November 5-8 2017: CHEM2STAB to present at the International congress of French group of membrane studies in Roscoff (France)
Christophe Bonnet (PhD student) held a poster about the synthesis and studies of hybrid double-chain detergents for the solubilisation and stabilization of membrane proteins. This work has been performed in collaboration with Dr. Sandro KELLER from the University of Kaiserslautern (GERMANY).
05/15/2017 : CHEM2STAB to present at the 2nd Symposium of Fluorine Chemistry
Dr. Gregory DURAND (Cofounder) described the synthesis of new fluorine molecules as well as encouraging results obtained in physico-chemical (colloidal properties) and biochemical (solubilization and stabilization of membrane protein targets) trials. This work has been performed in collaboration with Dr. Sandro KELLER from the University of Kaiserslautern (GERMANY).
05/15/2017 : CHEM2STAB to present at the GDR 3696 "Membrane Proteins: Focus on Molecular and Cellular Aspects" in the Island of Porquerolles
Dr. Françoise BONNETE (Senior Research Investigator) showcased new series of surfactants synthesized in the framework of our LabCom C2B for their use in membrane protein stabilization and crystallization, i.e. two diglucoside families, bearing either a hydrocarbonated chain or a fluorinated chain. Work highlights major results obtain in the biochemistry of membrane proteins (solubilization, behavior in solution, thermostability) using physico-chemical approaches based on these new compound families (tensiometry, ITC, SAXS and DLS).
