Education and Experience

 

Dr Elisabeth Garanger graduated in 2001 as a Chemical Engineer from ENSC Clermont-Ferrand and obtained simultaneously a Master’s degree in Biological Organic Chemistry. In 2005, she received her PhD in Chemistry and Biology from the University of Grenoble achieving a comprehensive study of peptide-based nanocarriers targeting tumors and their associated neo-angiogenesis under the supervision of Pr P. Dumy and Pr M-C. Favrot. She then joined the Center for Molecular Imaging Research (Mass. Gen. Hospital, Harvard Med. School, Boston, USA) as a post-doctoral fellow in the group of Pr L. Josephson and designed contrast agents for multimodal molecular imaging. In 2009, she joined the group of Pr S. Lecommandoux at LCPO to work on self-assembled nanoparticles from amphiphilic block copolymers for biomedical applications, namely cancer theranostics, and was appointed as a junior researcher at CNRS in 2012.

Awards and Responsabilities

 

Until December 2015, Dr Elisabeth Garanger has worked at the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology (IECB, Pessac, France) where she was appointed as a junior group leader in 2010. Her current research is dedicated to the design of peptide-polymer hybrid materials and recombinant polypeptides towards bioactive or biomimetic self-assemblies.
