Julien Berro

Associate Professor, Department of Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, and Department of Cell Biology

Julien Berro was initially trained in Applied Mathematics, Computer Sciences and Physics at Ecole Nationale Chimie Physique Biology in Paris and at the Institut National Polytechnique in Grenoble, France. He obtained his PhD in Mathematical Modeling in Biology at Universite JOseph Fourier, Grenoble, France. He became a bona fide biologist during his post-doctoral research with Tom Pollard at Yale University. He started his own lab in 2013 in the Nanobiology Institute on West Campus, where he combines experimental, computational and theoretical approaches to understand how molecular machineries produce forces in the cell, especially during endocytosis.
