Isabelle Jacques

PhD, MSc, Engineer

I am graduated from Chimie ParisTech in 2012. Parallel to my master’s degree in chemical science, I obtained a master’s degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from Pierre-and-Marie Curie University (Paris). I then joined Muriel Gondry’s group at the Saclay institute of biology and technology (IBiTecS, CEA). Enthusiast about the interface between chemistry and biology, I defended my PhD thesis on biosynthetic pathways in engineered microorganisms. For this work I was awarded the 2016 Eugène Schueller prize from L’Oréal. I joined Apteeus team in 2017 as project manager. I coordinate on a day-to-day basis team projects and supervise the development of screening tests.
