Pr Stéphane Parola in charge of 2 photons photopolymerization

My research areas are in the fields of molecular precursors for materials, the design of ligands, the chemistry of macrocycles (thiacalixarenes), the chemistry of Inorganic and Hybrid Organic/Inorganic materials. Our work lies at the frontier between inorganic and organic chemistry, with the aim to create new materials by association of organic or organometallic parts with inorganic counterparts and control of their interactions. The control of the structure and chemical composition of the final material at the molecular level, and/or the combination of organic/inorganic properties allow interesting perspectives in term of improvement or generation of new properties. The domain of applications is essentially for optical devices (optical limiting materials, filters), with some extends in the field of catalysis or medicine (Therapy, Diagnostic). I have published more than 70 publications in international journals and hold 10 patents from which several are transferred to industry. I have given over 50 conferences among which more than 25 were invited. I have been involved as PI and coordinator in several regional (Region Rhône-alpes), national (ANR, French ministry, CNRS, FUI) or international (EU FP7, Swedish Defense Research Agency) research projects in the fields of molecular engineering and material science. Several graduate students and 14 PhD students were supervised during this period in Lyon. I’m currently in charge of the group “Functional Materials and Photonics” of the Chemistry laboratory at ENS Lyon.

Dr Céline A. Mandon, in charge of the 4D printing developments of the platform.

Céline Mandon obtained her PhD in Medical and Biological Engineering at the Université Claude Bernard-Lyon 1 in 2005. At the interface of biochemistry, cellular biology and nano-biotechnology, she developed bioluminescent stress inducible cell based assays for pollutants detection, and combined diagnostic/therapy processes for in vivo imaging, by immune cell labeling by hybrid nanoparticles contrast agents. She then take charge of the AXO Science’s (Lyon University Start-up) pre-clinical and clinical assays, IVD Certification and CE marking of high-throughput and multiparametric biosensors. She joined the 3d.FAB platform (ICBMS-UMR5246 unit) as associate researcher, in charge of developing of bioanalytical systems by 3D printing called 4D printing.

Léa Pourchet in charge of the bioprinting developments of the platform.

Léa Pourchet works at Lyon University in an academic Institute specialized in chemistry and biochemistry (ICBMS), France. She obtained a double degree as polymer engineer and research master “Matériaux innovants” of one of the top French Engineer school (Ecole centrale). She is currently research engineer in charge of 3D bioprinting development and PhD student in the group of Dr.Christophe Marquette. Her areas of expertise focus in the bioprinting especially the interaction between biomaterials and cells.

Dr Edwin-Joffrey COURTIAL in charge of materials development of the platform.

Edwin-Joffrey COURTIAL is a researcher specialized in materials science and rheological behaviors. He obtained his PhD (2015) in Materials at IMP (Ingénierie des Matériaux Polymères) lab, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. These main activities are focus on correlation beetween (bio)materials formulations and rheological behaviors to define 3D (bio)printable conditions.
