After his PhD in Bordeaux on the structure of membrane proteins using cryo-electron tomography, Sylvain did his first post-doc in Frankfurt, Germany, where he continued working with electron microscopes on whole bacteria cells. With his strong background in electron microscopy, whilst he was a post-doc member of the U759 Inserm unit at the Institut Curie in Orsay working on the structure and ultrastructure of Trypanosoma brucei brucei axoneme components, he collaborated with our lab for over a year between November 2012 and October 2013. He now has a permanent engineer position at the Inserm.
