Research in our team revolves around understanding :
- the molecular mechanisms of the chemical senses (smell and taste) from the molecular stimuli to the human behaviour.
- the properties and reactivity of simple or complex system, for instance enzymatic mechanisms involved in the biosynthesis of odorants and flavonoids.
Our research is based on our expertise in molecular simulations from quantum chemistry to molecular dynamics as well as bioinformatics and chemoinformatics techniques to describe chemical and biological systems.
