On September 24th, Inès participated to the European Researchers Night in Le Mans, an event organized throughout Europe to share the passion of science with the public.
She presented the topic “hydrogel and health” and had in her researcher’s luggage some useful tools to explain her work: a sponge, some scoubidous, some slime, a dentist irradiation lamp and a loupe!
She also participated to a speed-searching session and gave an interview to the radio.
Find out more about Inès in the researchers’ portrait section.
Inès Hamouda and Divyendu Valappil are joining us starting February 15th.
Inès is a post-doc and she will work at IMMM in Le Mans to characterize the hydrogels by rheology and Light Scattering.
Divyendu is a research engineer and she will develop the SPIM environment at Restore laboratory.
On October 2020, Camille Courtine attended NICE-2020 International Conference, which is organized with the objective to share new developments in the growing field of bioinspired chemistry and materials.
Camille presented a part of her PhD work:
“Photo-switchable azobenzene-cyclodextrin complexes in water: a tool to mimic extra cellular matrix”
The article describing a full characterization of azobenzene@cyclodextrins complexes has just been accepted in J. Org. Chem.. This work describes the step-by-step procedure that we used to have access to all parameters of the complexes: stoichiometry, affinity constant, quantum yields of photochemical processes. This is based on Jorge’s early work, completed by Camille, and a strong help from Véronique. A real team work!
