Prof. Coppey-Moisan was educated in physico-chemistry at University Paris 7 and obtained a PhD ("thèse 3ième cycle") in 1976 in biochemistry and a "Thèse Etat" in 1981 in Biophysics working with Dave Jameson in Gregorio Weber's Laboratory at Urbana Champaign.

Prof. David M. Jameson
A student of the late Prof. Gregorio Weber, David Jameson
is Full Professor in the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Hawaii
Prof. Jameson's research
interests are focused on the development and application of time-resolved and steady-state fluorescence methodologies to elucidate dynamic aspects of biomolecules, including proteins, nucleic acids and membrane systems.
laboratory is investigating several protein systems, including both prokaryotic and eukaryotic ribosomal proteins, the GTP binding protein dynamin, the motor protein kinesin and Electron Transfer Flavoprotein (ETF).
One of his
laboratory's principle approaches is to use site-directed mutagenesis techniques to incorporate cysteine residues into target proteins, which can then be linked to sulfhydryl reactive fluorescence probes.
Fluorescence measurements can then be used to quantify dynamic aspects of these proteins during their interactions with physiologically significant ligands.
Author of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, Prof. Jameson
regularly reviews grants for the American Heart Association, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the National Science Foundation
research has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the American Heart Association
