Author Biography

Nicolas Bogliotti is Assistant Professor at �cole normale sup�rieure Paris-Saclay, France. After his undergraduate studies at Universit� Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France, he obtained his MSc and PhD Degrees at Universit� Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France. He was a postdoc at ETH Z�rich, Switzerland and Institut Curie, France, before his current position. His research interests focus on the synthesis of photosensitive molecules allowing visualization of recognition events, induction of a biological response and modulation of chemical reactivity.

Roba Moumn� is Assistant Professor at Universit� Pierre et Marie Curie, France. She studied chemistry and completed her MSc and PhD at the same university. Before her current position, she was also a postdoctoral fellow at Max-Planck-Institut in M�lheim and der Ruhr, Germany, at University of Z�rich, Switzerland and at Universit� Paris Descartes, France. Her research interests include bioorganic chemistry and peptide synthesis.
