After a Ph.D in supramolecular chemistry in Geneva (Switzerland), and two post-docs (in medicinal chemistry and chemical biology) in Paris (France), D. Monchaud was awarded a position of CNRS researcher in 2005. His initial appointment was the laboratory of Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn (Nobel Prize of Chemistry, 1987), in the College de France (Paris) under the supervision of Dr. Marie-Paule Teulade-Fichou. He then moved to the Institut Curie in 2007 with Dr. Teulade-Fichou (Orsay, France) until 2009, at which time he took the responsibility of his own research group named GATTACA (for Group “nucleic Acids’ Therapeutic & Technological Applications": Chemistry & bio-Analysis) at the Institut de Chimie Moleculaire de l’Université de Bourgogne (ICMUB) in Dijon. The topics of his research group are focused on the use of alternative nucleic acid structures (DNA and RNA) as targets for innovative therapies in two areas, cancers and neurodegenerative diseases. His research is well-received by the community as demonstrated by the number and variety of articles he published over the past years (>100 articles, >5700 citations, H-index: 37) in high-impact journals (Nat. Comm., Nat. Struct. Mol. Biol., Nat. Rev. Chem., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, etc.) along with 7 book chapters and 2 patents. He also edited a book on G-quadruplexes entitled “Biological relevance & therapeutic applications of DNA- and RNA-quadruplexes” for Future Science.
