Clément Nizak – Experimental Evolution

My current research focuses on enzymes and antibodies as experimental models to tackle fundamental questions related to bio-molecule function and evolution. Our experiments are based on droplet microfluidics, phage display and high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies. Our approaches are strongly motivated by computational analysis and theory.

I work at ESPCI Paris in collaboration with Andrew Griffiths (Laboratory of Biochemistry) and at CIRB-College de France in collaboration with Olivier Rivoire (Statistical Biology).

We explore applications of antibody repertoire screening and sequencing with industrial partners and ESPCI Paris spin-off start-ups (HiFiBiO).

I teach the Systems Biology course of the AIV Masters program at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research of University Paris Descartes, as well as part of the Systems Biology course at ESPCI and the ICFP Masters program of ENS Paris.
