Thierry has been working at the Institut Pasteur since 1982. As early as 1993, he integrated the Unit of Cyanobacteria, under Nicole TANDEAU DE MARSAC, working with large cyanobacterial biomasses in the frame of Chromatic adaptation studies. He joined our lab in July 2009, where he is mainly maintaining the cyanobacteria of the PCC and managing the Quality associated to it (ISO 9001 and NF S 96900). He is in charge of the preparation and disptach of the strains for the scientific community and our collaborators using the PCC. Thierry is also working on research projects dealing with the physiology of the strains.
