Biography

Jean A Boutin graduated (Thèse d’Etat en Sciences Biologiques) from Nancy University (France) on drug metabolism. He did his postdoctoral training at Johns Hopkins (Baltimore) and at the Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, Sweden). He was hired as protein chemist in Les Laboratoires SERVIER (LLS) in 1986. During the 30ish last years, Dr. Boutin moved from oncology to peptide research and then molecular & cellular pharmacology. Recently, LLS created a drug discovery platform that Dr. Boutin leads. This structure involves all the aspects of drug discovery, from molecular modeling to ligand/protein biophysical interaction measurements, including protein chemistry, stem cells, structural biology, chemogenetics, HTS, biophysics, Biologics. The main interests of Dr. Boutin are N-myristoyltransferase, melatonin, quinone reductase 2, MCH and autotaxin. In relation with Biologics, our group more particularly explores all the areas related to the possibilities to incorporate exotic amino acids into proteins, especially enzymes. j
