Nicolas Levrier is a Masters student following a formation in general engineering and chemistry at the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris - PSL (ENSCP). He attended Classes Préparatoires in Thiers (Marseille, France) in physics, mathematics and chemistry for three years, a training that prepares for national competitions for the Grandes Ecoles. His current interests focus on chemistry applied to biology and more specifically synthetic biology.
ATP Synthases Advocate
Nikola has a broad interest in Biology, developed during his Life Science studies at the CRI in Paris. His current interest is the protein solving problem, and find out specific patterns of protein function to allow for better protein design. To him research is a playground where curiosity and interests can give rise to usable knowledge and he participated in iGEM to investigate a question together with science enthusiasts.
Valerie has recently completed her Masters in the Life Sciences program at the CRI & Université de Paris. She has a background in Molecular and Cell Biology and believes that Synthetic Biology has the potential to radically transform human innovation. She appreciates in particular, how Synthetic Biology allows us to ask "what if?" She is starting her PhD in the near future, and aspires to a career innovating biomedicine using Synthetic Biology tools.
Xavier completed his Master's degree in fundamental Biology of Health at ENS Paris Saclay and ENS Ulm PSL and served for a year at the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI). He loves all branches of biology with a molecular angle, from Rubisco and C4 photosynthesis to CAR T Cells and immunotherapy. His hobbies range from contemporary dance to rugby.
