Loïc Lemiègre obtained his PhD degree from the University of Rouen in 2002 under the supervision of Dr. Jacques Maddaluno and Prof. Jean-Claude Combret. Then he joined the group of Prof. Eiichi Nakamura (The University of Tokyo) as a postdoc working on fullerene chemistry (2002-2004) and then he moved to the group of Prof. Jonathan Clayden (The University of Manchester) working on molecular helices (2004-2005). He started his academic career in 2005 at the ENSC-Rennes where he is now associate professor. He is mainly interested in the synthesis of amphiphilic molecules related to carbohydrates and their self-assemblies, and in bio based polymers.

Synthesis and self-assembly of glycoconjugates
We are interested in the design, the synthesis and the self-assembly of sugar-based structures towards the formation of hydrogels or organogels. Thanks to a collaboration with the IPR on the same campus, we can fully characterize the so-formed soft materials (SEM, TEM, SAXS, Rheology, etc..).
Most of the work done on this subject was achieved in collaboration with Dr. Jean-Luc Audic. The main idea of this work is the development of new polymer materials from vegetable oil.
