Dr. Erwann Guénin is an assistant professor at Université Paris 13 since 2002. He is now in the Laboratory of Vascular Translational Science Inserm U1148 (previously he was in the Laboratory of Chemistry, Properties and Structure of Biomaterials and Therapeutic Agents UMR CNRS 7244). He teaches chemistry for various courses in life science licence, master biomaterials and master therapies, and life technologies. Dr. Guénin initially studied organic chemistry at Université de Bretagne Occidentale, Brittany (France), where he got his PhD in 1999 in the synthesis of new cationic lipids and their applications in DNA transfection. For 20 months, as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Dr. A. B. Tabor at University College London (UK), he worked on peptide synthesis for DNA transfection applications. He then worked for a year in Centre de Neurochimie, Université de Strasbourg, with Dr. E. Trifilieff on the development of peptide vaccines. At Université Paris 13, Dr. Guénin first worked on the synthesis, characterization, and vectorization of phosphorous therapeutic agents. He later joined the nanomaterials group of the CSPBAT laboratory in 2010 and has been developing, with Pr. L. Motte, new methodologies for the synthesis and functionalization of nanomaterials with applications in biomedical and environmental sciences. He has also done notable work on the development of several grafting methodologies involving click chemistry and microwave irradiation.
