Dr. Jean-Philippe Pin

Dr. Jean-Philippe Pin, director of Functional Genomics Institute of Montpellier (IGF), has a long-standing expertise in GPCR and especially in mGluR. He joined the CNRS in 1988 as a Research, and applies her knowledge as a biologist to develop innovative tools for the  fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) strategies to study receptor oligomer either in heterologous expression system or in native tissues. Through the development of new technologies, Pin team has described new concepts for many other GPCRs, including their association in dimers and oligomers or their functionnal characterization. Finally he has co-authored more than 245 peer-reviewed scientific publications and he was named in many patent applications.
