Dr. Jean-François Berret (DR1 CNRS) is a renowned scientist in soft-condensed matter and biophysics. He is member of the Matière et Systèmes Complexes lab since 2005 and has a strong experience in fundamental and applied research.
Dr. Jean-François Berret is an alumnus of the Ecole Normale Supérieure ENS-ULM in Paris with a specialization in physics. He joined the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in 1983 at the age of 24, became CNRS research director in 1999 and was promoted to CNRS research director first class in 2011. He worked 4 years in the United States (2000 – 2004) for the Rhodia® company. His current research focuses on the development of soft matter nanotechnology, including new functional structures, devices and systems with stimuli-reactive features at the nano- and microscale. Its objectives are the applications of emerging nanotechnologies in medicine, biology and the environment. Applications include in vivo imaging and therapy tools, microfluidics and microrheology, and the study of living system-machine interfaces.
