Bruno Canard obtained a PhD in 1991 in Microbiology and Biochemistry from the Université of Paris VII at the Institut Pasteur (mentor: Dr. Stewart T. Cole), Paris, and post-doctoral training in 1995-1998 at Harvard Medical School, Dept. Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology (mentor: Dr. Charles C. Richardson), Boston.

He is currently principal investigator of the team “Viral Replication: Structure, Mechanisms, and Drug Design” at the Architecture and Functions of Biological Macromolecules Laboratory, Aix-Marseille Université, Marseille, France, where he holds a CNRS position as Directeur de Recherche.

His current interests are the structure and function of enzymes involved in viral replication and RNA capping, and their use in antiviral drug design.
