The University of Perpignan is a young university created in 1975. It is composed of 5 Faculties, 3 Technology Institutes and 3 Professional Institutes and 15 research centres in sciences. There are more than 10 000 students of which more than 30 % are from foreign countries. It is part in 96 international agreement contracts with 36 countries and participates in various scientific programmes and specific actions.
Representative: Prof. Jean-Louis MARTY
The BIOMEM Laboratory was created in 1990 (name until 2003: Centre de Phytopharmacie) at the University of Perpignan.The research group is coordinated by Prof. Jean-Louis Marty and is currently composed by professor Régis Rouillon, two associated professors Dr. Thierry Noguer and Dr. Lise Barthelmeb, two engineer Gérard Jeanty and Jean-Pierre Cambon, one invited professor Gilvanda Silva Nunes (from Brasil), one post-doc Dr. Monica Campas and five Ph.D. students Florent Breton, Bogdan Bucur, Ana Maria Gurban, Dorota Szydlowska and Akane Sakaguchi.
The research is focussed on the development of biosensors in
-environmental field: detection, analysis, toxicity of pesticides and bacterial toxins in waters and solid samples,
-agro-food field: the detection of various substrates for monitoring fermentation of wine and quality of foods,
And synthesis of MIPS for pesticides and heavy metals extraction.
- Analytical Chemistry courses for graduated and undergraduated students
- Biosensor technology and biosensor training for graduated and undergraduated students.
- Project research and changes of students in various programmes : European concerted actions, Tempus, Erasmus, Leonardo de Vinci, ECOS-Nord, French-Japanese Doctoral College.
