Davide AUDISIO holds a PhD degree in medicinal chemistry from the University Paris Sud (France) under the supervision of Dr. M. Alami and Dr. S. Messaoudi. After a postdoctoral experience at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung (Germany) with Prof. N. Maulide working on asymmetric catalysis, in 2012 he joined the chemistry department of Eli Lilly & Co (UK). In 2014, he joined the group of Dr. Frédéric Taran at CEA, the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (France) and since 2016, he is the head of the Laboratory of Carbon-14 Labeling. His research interests span diverse areas within organic chemistry, including carbon radiolabeling methodologies, the development of new tools for bio-orthogonal chemistry and the investigation of alternatives synthetic access to poly-aromatic compounds. ​


Frédéric TARAN is in charge of the department of organic chemistry (50 persons) at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) located at Saclay. Dr. Taran secured a PhD in chemistry at the Paris XI University under the supervision of Dr. Charles Mioskowski. In 1996, he moved to a post-doctoral position with Prof. Sir Derek Barton (Nobel Prize 1969) at Texas A&M University (USA) and then came back to CEA in 1998 as permanent researcher. His research aims at developing new reagents for bioorthogonal chemistry to address important problems in the fields of bioconjugation, labeling, imaging and drug delivery.

Antoine SALLUSTRAU received his PhD degree in Organic Chemistry at the University of Birmingham (UK) under the supervision of Prof. J.H.R. Tucker in 2013. In 2014, he joined CEA-Saclay (French Atomic Energy Commission) as post-doctorant under the supervision of Dr. Frédéric Taran. In 2017, he joined the Department of Bioorganic Chemistry and Isotope Labeling in CEA as research-engineer and work now with carbon isotopes for the labeling of small organic molecules and carbon-based nanoparticles together with Dr. Frédéric Taran and Dr. Davide Audisio.​

Maxime Ribéraud received his master's degree from Poitiers University in 2019 and is currently working toward his PhD in organic chemistry at the Atomic Energy and Alternative Energy Commission (CEA). His research focuses on developing new methods for the detection and quantification of tumour receptors by bioorthogonal chemistry.
