CNRS biochemist Yoann Roupioz wins the Masao Horiba award
Yoann Roupioz, a CNRS biochemist working at the Nanosciences and Cryogenics Institute (INAC), has won the Masao Horiba Award given by Japanese company Horiba to support researchers developing innovative analysis and measurement technology. Yoann was honored for his work on cell biochips and the real-time monitoring of cellular secretions, which has been used to develop systems that can track antibody secretions in real-time without markers—a major step forward for vaccine diagnostics and screening.
In January 2012 Yoann will begin work on an ANR project in association with GenOptics, a CEA-born start-up acquired by Horiba in 2009 and specialized in Surface Plasmon Resonance imaging (SPRi).
