Title: Illuminating peptides with lanthanides: design of selective luminescent sensors


Olivier Sénèque obtained a PhD in organic and supramolecular chemistry from the University of Paris XI under the supervision of Prof. Olivia Reinaud in 2002. Then he spent two postdoctoral years in the group of Dr Pascale Delangle at the CEA-Grenoble before being appointed as a CNRS researcher in 2004. His interest is focused on metallopeptides as comprehensive models to understand the properties of metal sites in proteins or as luminescent probes to detect various types of bioanalytes ranging from metal cations to biomolecules.
