Jean-Baptiste Sibarita’s Homepage

Jean-Baptiste Sibarita has started his own CNRS R&D team at the Genomic Functional / University of Bordeaux, since 2009, in the field of quantitative cell imaging. He obtained a PhD thesis in Physics in 1996, at the University Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, before being recruited at the CNRS as Research Engineer in 1997.

J.-B. Sibarita has co-headed and developed the Imaging Platform of the Curie Institute (PICT-IBiSA) in Paris for 12 years. He is expert in live microscopy and image processing and analysis. During the last 10 years, he has initiated a few industrial partnerships, based on developments achieved in his lab. He is at the origin of 3 industrial technology transfers as single or main author: “HTP deconvolution module” with MDS (2000, single author) and Kinetic Imaging (2001, single author) and “Fast FRAP Imaging” with Roper/Photometrics (2005, principal author). In 2008, he has initiated and developed with his group the 6th Nikon Imaging Centre in the world. He also has developed academic technology transfers and collaborations, some of them leading to high ranked publications.

He received the CNRS Crystal Medal award in 2005 and obtained a Chair d’Excellence of the Conseil Regional d’Aquitaine in 2008. In 2010, he received the FRM young team grant.
