The HIRES-MULTIDYN project is coordinated by the team at Ecole Normale Supérieure PSL in Paris, France.
The team is part of the NMR group at the Department of Chemistry of the Ecole Normale Superieure PSL, Paris, in the Laboratoire des BioMolécules (UMR 7203, CNRS, ENS – PSL, Sorbonne Université). The group offers a unique environment where the research activity on magnetic resonance encompasses pulse sequence and hardware developments for liquid-state and solid-state NMR, MRI and hyperpolarization, as well as applications to a range of biomolecular systems.
Fabien Ferrage is the coordinator of the project. He is a senior scientist at CNRS and associate professor at ENS – PSL. He is a specialist of NMR methodology and instrumentation, mostly for protein dynamics. His recent work has been focused on the development of high-resolution relaxometry and two-field NMR.
Guillaume Bouvignies is associate scientiste at CNRS. He focusses on the development of novel NMR techniques for studying biomolecular structure and dynamics and the application of the newly developed methodologies to gain insight into the role of conformational dynamics in mediating important biological processes. His domain of expertise covers all aspects of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, from pulse sequence design to data analysis, as well as molecular modeling and computational programming.
Philippe Pelupessy is a research engineer at CNRS. He is an expert in methodology of all flavors of NMR: solution-state NMR of proteins and small molecules, solid-state NMR, MRI, etc.
Olof Stenström joined the ENS group as a post-doc on October 1st 2021. He obtained his PhD from University of Lund in Sweden in 2020. He is working on the investigation of pharmaceuticals with relaxometry.
Ulric B. le Paige joined the project as post-doc on May 2022 to focus on the potential of HRR to elucidate protein dynamics. After graduating in biochemistry from the university of Liège, Belgium, he pursued a PhD in Utrecht University where he used solution and solid state NMR to study the nucleosome.
Stéphanie Toetsch is a project manager with great experience both in research and in project management. After a Master in biomedical engineering, in Paris, she obtained a PhD in biophysics from Trinity College Dublin. Back in France, she worked for ANR, the main funding agency in France, obtained a Master in management of research and innovation from Paris-Dauphine, and was a project manager at ESPCI Paris for several years.
