Natacha Gillet

Interested by proteins for a long time, I have focused my research since my PhD on biological processes involving charge transfers using QM/MM simulations. I worked in the "charge transfer" team in the group of Pr. M. Elstner. We studied proteins systems such as photolyase/cryptochrome, ribonucleotide reductase, azurins... After a short stay in the group of Pr. A. Dejeagere and R. Stote, with a project about nuclear receptors, I joined the laboratoire de chimie de l'ENS Lyon as a CNRS resercher to work on charge transfer in several DNA structures using MM and QM/MM approaches.
