Laboratory of Design and Application of Bioactive Molecules (CBST) | UMR7199  Director: Thomas Grutter




Team "Chemistry and Molecular Neurobiology"

Thomas Grutter

The team directed by Thomas Grutter (CNRS research director) is interested in the overactivation of receptors leading to neuropathic pain. He seeks to understand how these receptors work thanks to a system of "molecular clamps" activated by light to open an ion channel, as well as another system allowing them to be locally activated. Apart from the strong collaboration that EURIDOL will bring between the different laboratories, Thomas Grutter would like to reconcile neuroscience students with chemistry in order to be able to develop chemical engineering applied to neuroscience and thus develop new techniques to deepen the field.
