About Lucie's research

Membrane proteins enable communication of biological cells with their environment. They are the basis for the transmission of electrical signals in nerve cells and heart cells, or for the recognition of hormones or neurotransmitters. Our interest lies in characterizing their function and their dysfunction following, for example, genetic mutations, at a level of description where we can see the movement of each individual atom. To do this, our group performs data simulations and collaborates with groups around the world to challenge and validate the simulation results.

Our work finds applications in the design of modulators that can restore the function of membrane proteins when dysfunction occurs. For example, our work allows us to propose new ways to treat epilepsy or Parkinson's disease for patients who are resistant to traditional medications.

In brief

Interests: Yoga, boxing, hiking, knitting, sewing, and discovering new food.
Other: French, has lived in the United Kingdom, the United States, Switzerland, and Sweden.

I want to influence how the academic world is structured and how scientific research is carried out and evaluated. This in order to make universities and research institutes welcoming institutions where all voices can be heard. At the same time, I wish to maintain my excellence and integrity.
