  • Jean-François Joanny, Collège de France

Jean-François Joanny started his career as a CNRS researcher at Collège de France and then in Lyon. He was appointed as a professor at University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg in 1989 and then at University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris in 2003. He is a theoretical physicist and he has worked on various aspects of Soft Condensed Matter Physics and Physics for Biology. Between 2014 and 2018, he was the Director General of Ecole Supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles. He has been a professor at Collège de France since September 2018. When he moved to UPMC in Paris, he became director of the Physics Unit of Institut Curie. Since that time, he has worked on cell biophysics and fundamental cellular processes, the mechanics and growth of tissues and cancer physics. He describes all these biological phenomena with the concept of active matter.
