Pierre-Damien Coureux

Assistant Professor in Electron Microscopy at BIOC* at École Polytechnique (IP Paris)

After a PhD in structural biology on myosin molecular motors at Institut Curie in 2004, he left for the United States to study bacterial and plant photoreceptors using several approaches including electron microscopy. He was recruited in 2008 at the Ecole Polytechnique and works mainly on the cellular machines that synthesise our proteins: the ribosomes, with those of the Archaea as a study model. He was appointed head of CIMEX in 2020 and is also involved in teaching biology at X.
