Pr. Christophe Biot
PhD Organic Chemistry

Pr. Christophe Biot obtained its Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Lille in 1998, where his research focused on bio organometallics and malaria. After completing postdoctoral work in the fields of biochemistry, structural biology, and molecular modeling, he was recruited to Lille in 2004 as an assistant professor. Since joining the UGSF in 2009, he convinced his biologist colleagues that the chemist can not only make an important contribution but that he can also be the focus of such chemical biology projects. He was appointed Professor in 2012.

In addition, Pr. Biot leads the Chemical Glycobiology Team at the UGSF (CNRS UMR 8576). He also initiated the creation of the French Chemical biology Group at the French Chemical Society.

Pr. Biotis member of the Medical Research Foundation’s Scientific Committee and of the Committee of the Swiss National Foundation Sinergia Project.
