Nathan Renier


I graduated from the Faculty of Science at ULB as a chemist in the field of supramolecular chemistry. I am currently pursuing a PhD in the EMNS laboratory at the Ecole polytechnique de Bruxelles and have obtained a FRIA grant.




Research interests

I Study the Cu+ transmembrane transport properties of synthetic molecules designed by biomimicry. The objective is to develop methods of detection for Cu+ transport and efficient transporters. These molecules could have potential applications for the treatments of Cu+ related diseases such as Wilson and Menkes diseases.



Teaching Activities

I am an assistant (handling labs and exercises) for the course of Organic Chemistry taught to MA1 students in the Chemical and Materials Engineering Master degree of the Bruface program.
