In a few words

After a PhD in biophysics in 2001 supervised by Dr M. Coppey-Moisan, Marc Tramier was directly recruited as CNRS Research Engineer in Maïté Coppey ’s lab at Jacques Monod Institute (Paris). In 2010, Marc Tramier moved to Rennes to set up his own team at IGDR. Marc Tramier is renowned for his expertise in FLIM and particularly its applications in biology to quantify FRET in live samples
