LMGP’s Biological Matter & Materials Team, headed by biophysicist Dr. Catherine Picart, will soon have the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Thomas Boudou, a research project manager at CNRS.
Dr. Boudou will draw on his biomechanical know-how to spearhead a breakthrough project on muscle tissue in association with the CEA’s iRSTV, the Albert-Bonniot Institute, and the French Neurosciences Institute. He intends to study the formation and spatial orientation of healthy and diseased tissue in 3D, in order to determine its architecture and ability to contract.
Dr. Boudou holds a PhD in mechanics and conducted post-doc research on cellular mechanotransduction mechanisms at the University of Pennsylvania.
