Education and Experience
Dr. Colin Bonduelle graduated with a PhD from the University of Toulouse, France, in December 2008. Supervised by Dr. Didier Bourrissou (France, LHFA, UMR CNRS 5069), his thesis dissertation addressed preparation of polyesters from O-carboxyanhydrides. For his first post-doctoral experience, he spent two years at Western University (Department of chemistry, Ontario, Canada) studying block copolymer patterning in surface science under the supervision of Pr. Elizabeth Gillies. He then moved to LCPO to work with Pr. Sébastien Lecommandoux on the design of new biocompatible amphiphilic copolymer self-assemblies. In October 2014, he was appointed tenured CNRS researcher working in the Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination (LCC UPR8241, Toulouse, France) in the team “Molecular and macromolecular anti-infectious agents”. Since January 2019, Dr. Colin Bonduelle joined back the team of Sébastien Lecommandoux at LCPO. His current research is dedicated to the design of polymeric analogues of proteins for further applications in therapeutic, diagnosis and catalysis.
