Material and surfaces for environment and health of soft matter

Material & surfaces for environement and health of soft matter

Several projects of our institute are at the interface between physics, chemistry and biology. We mostly investigate the physico-chemical behavior and properties of materials and surfaces in complex environments or in interaction with cells and microorganisms. We also propose the elaboration of materials, surfaces and protocols mainly dedicated to sensing applications in medical, food and environmental fields.

Detection, analysis and sensing for environment and health

Vibrational spectroscopies allow the fast and reliable identification and detection of molecules in any sample (liquid, solid, gaz, complex matrix…) with the possibility to strongly enhance the signal (SERS) allowing the detection of very small concentrations. Our group developed strong skills in elaborating strategies for the immobilization, fast detection and analysis of organic molecules or microorganisms for environmental and health applications: organic pollutants in wood recycling industry, microorganisms and antibioresistance, food contaminants, pesticides in waters, micro and nanoplastics in aquatic compartments and biota, biomarkers in body fluids….
