Higher Order Structures and Molecular Recognition with Helical Foldamers 

Gilles Guichard (born 1969) graduated in chemistry from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie in Toulouse (1991) and University of Montpellier (1992) in France. He received his PhD from the Université of Strasbourg (1996), studying immune recognition properties of pseudopeptides. Following post-doctoral research with Prof. Dieter Seebach at the ETH in Zürich (1997) in the field of β-peptides, he joined the Institut de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire (IBMC) in Strasbourg as a CNRS Chargé de Recherche (1998). Since 2006, he has been a CNRS Research Director. In 2009, he moved to the Institut de Chimie et Biologie des Membranes et Nanoobjets (CBMN) and the Institut Européen de Chimie et Biologie (IECB) in Bordeaux as a group leader. He has been serving as deputy scientific director of the CBMN laboratory since 2017 and was recently appointed head of the new Department of Sciences and Technology for Health at the University of Bordeaux.

Research in his group focuses on biomimetic chemistry of peptides, foldamer chemistry, self-assembly and biomolecular recognition including modulation of protein-protein interactions.
