Curriculum vitae

Florence Vincent obtained a PhD in 2001 in Structural Biology from the University of Aix-Marseille (mentor: Dr Christian Cambillau), and post-doctoral training in 2001-2004 at York Structural Biology Laboratory, Dept. Chemistry (mentor: Dr Gideon Davies), UK. She is currently a research scientist in the team “Structural Glycobiology and Neurobiology” at the Architecture and Function of Biological Macromolecules Laboratory, Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France. Her current interests are the structure and function of enzymes involved in bacterial cell wall lysis and biofilm development by pathogenic bacteria.
