Title: Uranyl-binding peptides to shed light on uranium toxicity at the molecular level.
Pascale DELANGLE defended a PhD in supramolecular chemistry in 1996 about phosphorous cation receptors and was then recruited at the Fundamental Research Division at CEA Grenoble to develop research on f-elements coordination in solution. In the last 15 years, she focused on bioinorganic chemistry and more precisely on peptide design for selective metal ion chelation. Recent research topics exploit biomimetic strategies for the development of mimics of metal binding sites in proteins to understand their toxicity or to develop detoxification agents. She is currently the head of the SyMMES laboratory, “Molecular Systems and nanoMaterials for Energy and Health”, a joint unit between Grenoble Alpes University, Grenoble INP, CEA and CNRS, located at CEA Grenoble.
