What does the laboratory do

  • Development of new drug vectors based on gold nanoparticles for ophthalmology
  • Membrane processes of proteins involved in vision


The laboratory of Dr. Élodie Boisselier has developed several vectors based on gold nanoparticles for the optimization of medication in ophthalmology. This new patented nanotechnology could enable the improvement of several drugs, particularly those that are administered frequently. Furthermore, his laboratory is equipped to study the membrane binding of several proteins, peptides or molecules which are involved in different mechanisms essential to cell survival.
