Mathieu Coppey is a physicist and cell biologist with expertise on optogenetic tools to control RhoGTPase activity in the context of cell migration and polarity. He is leading the Team LOCCO at the Physico-Chemistry department of the Curie Institute in Paris. He did a PhD in statistical physics on reaction-diffusion processes in Paris, followed by a postdoc on developmental biology at Princeton, working on morphogen gradients in the early drosophila embryo. He came back to Paris to work on magnetogenetics and single molecule imaging, and got a permanent position at the CNRS in 2010.
