Emilie Moulin

Emilie Moulin Emilie Moulin started her chemistry studies in Toulouse (ENSCT) and Paris (ENSPC) to become an engineer and graduated in chemistry in 2003 from University Pierre and Marie Curie - Paris VI. She then carried out her PhD (2003 - 2006) under the supervision of Prof. Nicolas Winssinger at the I.S.I.S. (Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie Supramoléculaires, Strasbourg) working on the total synthesis of resorcylic acid lactones so called pochonins. In 2007, she joined the group of Prof. Aloïs Fürstner at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung (Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany) working on the total synthesis of bioactive macrolides known as Iejimalides. For her stay in Germany, she was awarded two prestigious postdoctoral fellowships from the Association pour la Recherche sur le Cancer and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. In 2008, she was appointed as a Chargée de Recherche CNRS (Assistant Professor) at the Institut Charles Sadron (Strasbourg) working in collaboration with Prof. Nicolas Giuseppone and defended her “Habilitation à diriger les recherches” in 2014. Her current interests include organic and supramolecular chemistry applied to the development of functional (bio-)materials. In particular, she has been instrumental in developing a) supramolecular triarylamine self-assemblies which display exceptional conducting properties and b) stimuli-responsive muscle-like materials based on molecular machines. For this work, she was awarded in 2015 the price “Les Espoirs de l’Université de Strasbourg”.

As part of her fellowship, Emilie Moulin is working on the project Supramolecular DNA-Triarylamine hybrids: towards self-assembled origami-based nanocircuits.
