Dr Vincent Bizet

Vincent Bizet studied chemistry at the University of Caen (FR) and then moved to the INSA of Rouen (FR) to do his PhD under the supervision of Dr. D. Cahard (2009-2012). After postdoctoral studies at RWTH Aachen University  (DE) with Prof. C. Bolm (2013-2014 – Alexander von Humboldt fellowship) and then at Geneva University (CH) with Prof. C. Mazet (2014-2016), he joined the CNRS as « Chargé de recherche » at the University of Strasbourg (FR) in 2016 in the team « Biomolecules, Synthesis and Methodologies » (BSM) led by Dr. N. Blanchard from the « Laboratoire d’Innovation Moléculaire et Applications » (LIMA, UMR 7042). In 2022, Vincent obtained his habilitation (HDR) from the University of Strasbourg.
