GDR Micro Nano Fluidique

Mois : février 2019

The development of microfluidics technology allowed to revisit the fabrication of emulsions and offers now an efficient tool for making well calibrated emulsion droplets. In
addition, to capability to encapsulate various components, to add process steps in serial, to parallelize droplet production and operations opened a new avenue for tailoring
microparticles from emulsion droplet template. These functional microparticles find application in biotechnology where a precise control of particles features, like size or binding
capacity, is needed


In tight collaboration with Grenoble Hospital, LETI and BIG institutes open 5 postdoctoral positions to hire young researchers willing to contribute their expertise and enthusiasm at the service of an ambitious « Pancreas-on-Chip » multidisciplinary project. This project applies a range of interdisciplinary technologies and advanced approaches in microfluidics, 3D bioprinting, stem cells, and nanomaterials, to engineer devices that can recapitulate functional units of human pancreas.


Introduction et contexte – L’étude des propriétés originales de nanoparticules colloïdales synthétisées par voie chimique ainsi que leur intégration pour réaliser la zone active de dispositifs fonctionnels innovants requiert leur assemblage dirigé sur des zones parfaitement définies de surfaces solides ou flexibles. Depuis plusieurs années, l’équipe Nanotech du Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie des Nano-Objets (LPCNO- UMR 5215 INSA-CNRS-UPS) à Toulouse a développé une technique innovante, la nanoxérographie, répondant à ce défi.


Our project, funded by the French ANR (Agence National de la Recherche), aims at understanding the mechanisms driving the activity and complex dynamics of the Bacterial Flagellar Motor in its cellular context. The motor is a large and powerful protein complex found in the membrane of many motile bacteria. Consuming the energy of the Ion Motive Force (the trans-membrane potential built by the cell during respiration), it is responsible for rotation of flagella and propulsion of the cell.
