Jean-Philippe GourdineJean-Philippe Gourdine, Ph.D., in the Cummings lab is featured in the spotlight section of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) for September 2012.  Dr. Gourdine works on the identification of leukocyte glycoprotein receptors important for signaling by galectins, a family of glycan binding proteins expressed in many cell types, using diverse tools (glycan microarrays, affinity chromatography, western-blot, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and inhibition experiments). Prior to coming to the USA, Dr. Gourdine completed his first postdoc in Glycobiology in Anne Imberty’s lab at the National Center for Scientific Research in Grenoble (CNRS, France). He has also taught biochemistry and evolutionary biology at the University of the French West Indies and Guyana (U.A.G) in Martinique and Guadeloupe, where he graduated with his Ph.D. in Marine Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2006.
