The Team

Yann Fichou - Team Leader
Yann Fichou got an engineering degree in physics and material sciences from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA) in Rennes in 2011. He received in 2015 his PhD from the Université Grenoble Alpes where he studied protein and hydration dynamics by neutron scattering and MD simulations, under the supervision of Martin Weik at the Institut de Biologie Structurale (IBS). He carried out a first postdoc in the lab of Martina Havenith at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB, Germany) where he studied protein hydration by THz spectroscopy. From 2016 to 2020, Dr. Fichou carried out a second postdoc at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) in the group of Songi Han. He focused his work on studying the mechanisms of tau aggregation by electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR). Since 2020, Yann Fichou is a CNRS Chargé de Recherche at the institute de Chimie et Biologie des Membranes et Nano-objets (CBMN) in Bordeaux and he became group leader at the Institut Européen de Chimie et Biologie (IECB) after obtaining a ERC starting grant in 2021.
