Dr. E. Garanger is tenured junior researcher at CNRS since 2012. She received a PhD in Chemistry & Biology in 2005 from Univ. Grenoble achieving a comprehensive study on peptide-based nanocarriers targeting tumors and their associated neo-angiogenesis. She pursed her career at Mass. Gen. Hosp. & Harvard Med. School as post-doc working on the design of contrast agents for multimodal molecular imaging. She joined LCPO in 2009 as post-doc and the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology (IECB) in 2010 as project leader to develop bioactive amphiphilic peptide-based block copolymers. Her current research activities focus on the design of recombinant elastin-like polypeptides and bioconjugates thereof for the design of smart biomaterials and drug delivery systems.
