Bruno Mesmin IPMC, Nice, FranceDr Bruno Mesmin is a researcher at the Institut de Pharmacologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire, CNRS and Université Côte d’Azur at Valbonne, France. Dr Mesmin’s scientific interests are membrane biology, lipid transport and membrane trafficking. He worked on intracellular cholesterol transport and sterol transfer proteins both with Frederick R. Maxfield during his postdoc and with Bruno Antonny. Dr Mesmin and colleagues have established a new model for non-vesicular lipid traffic at membrane contact sites, in which forward lipid transport is coupled to backward transport and hydrolysis of the phosphoinositide PI(4)P. He was hired Chargé de Recherche by Inserm in 2014. The central focus of his current research is the structure and function of proteins involved in organelles contacts and the associated membrane dynamics and signaling.
