Hugues BERRY - Short Bio          

Hugues Berry is a senior researcher (DR2) with the French national institute for research in computer science (INRIA) in Lyon, France. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry & Biophysics in 1999 from the University of Technology of Compiegne, France and was appointed associate professor at the Biology Department of the University of Cergy-Pontoise, France in 2000. In 2004, he moved to INRIA, first with project-team Alchemy in Orsay, then in Lyon with project-team Beagle, a joint research group of INRIA and University of Lyon. His research interest is in computational cell biology and computational neuroscience. More specifically, he currently focuses on the influence of space and macromolecular crowding in intracellular signaling and biochemistry, and on the molecular networks implicated in neuronal plasticity and glial cell-neuron interactions.
