Prof. Teissié Justin
Justin Teissié, born in 1947, got a degree in engineering from ESPCI (Paris, 1970), a PhD in macromolecular chemistry (Université Paris VI, 1973), a DSc in Biophysics (Université Toulouse, 1979). He was hired by the CNRS in 1973, was a post doc fellow at the Johns Hopkins University (School of Medicine) (Prof T.Y. Tsong)(1979-81). He is DRCE CNRS emeritus since 2012. His field of expertise is dealing with membrane biophysics mostly on the bioelectrochemical aspects. His research is a synergy between development of new hypothesis and concepts and experimental validation through designs of new technologies. He introduced the concept and methodologies of PEF (pulsed electric field) in France in the early 80’s.
