Dr. Marc Mauduit (CV)


Marc Mauduit obtained his Ph.D degree in 1999 from the University of Paris-Sud Orsay in France under the guidance of Prof. Y. Langlois. After working as postdoctoral fellow with Prof. S. Hanessian at Montreal University in Canada, he joined the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes (UMR CNRS 6226 « Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes ») in 2001 as Researcher Fellow at CNRS. In 2010, he was appointed Reseacher Director at CNRS. His research interest mainly focuses on organometallic chemistry, including olefin metathesis and enantioselective catalysis involving newly designed chiral ligands (N-heterocyclic carbenes and Phosphino-Schiff bases).

Dr. Olivier Baslé (CV)


Olivier Baslé completed his Master degree under the supervision of Prof. P.H Dixneuf at the university of Rennes in 2006 and obtained his PhD degree in 2009 at McGill University under the guidance of Prof. C.-J. Li. After postdoctoral studies with Prof. J. Rodriguez and T. Constantieux in Marseille and Dr. D. Bourrisou in Toulouse, he was appointed Chargé de Recherche (CNRS) at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes in 2011. In 2018, he joined the CNRS Laboratory of Coordination Chemistry (LCC) in Toulouse. His research program focuses on the development of selective catalytic transformations using N-Heterocyclic Carbene-metal complexes. His research interests include organic synthesis, organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis.



Dr. Christophe Crévisy (CV)


Christophe Crévisy received his PhD degree in 1992 from the University of Orléans. His PhD studies on the synthesis of antitumor enediynes were carried out under the direction of Dr. Jean-Marie Beau. From 1992 to 1993, he did a postdoctoral work with Pr. Pierre Deslongchamps at the University of Sherbrooke (Canada). Since 1994, he has been a senior lecturer at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes. He received his “Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches” degree in 2004. His main research interests are the development of new chiral ligands dedicated to asymmetric catalysis of reactions such as conjugated additions or allylic alkylation, the application of olefin metathesis to the valorisation of raw materials isolated from renewable resources and the development of new anti-tumor N-Heterocyclic Carbene/metal complexes.


Sophie Colombel-Rouen (CV)


Sophie Colombel-Rouen received her Ph.D. degree in 2012 from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) in Rouen under the supervision of Professor Xavier Pannecoucke and Dr. Eric Leclerc. Her Ph.D. studies were on the synthesis of difluorinated α-C- galactosylceramides and the assessment of their immunoregulation properties for the treatment of systemic autoimmune diseases. After postdoctoral work with Professor Thierry Benvegnu at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes, she was appointed Engineer at ENSCR. Her main mission is to support the OMC (Organometallics, Materials & Catalysis) team in their research and to validate programs through organic synthesis.
