Jonathan Elegheert


After studying medicine (BSc) and biochemistry (MSc), I obtained my PhD in 2012 from Ghent University (Belgium), where I studied the structural biology of Colony-Stimulating Factor 1 (CSF-1) cytokine signalling in the lab of Prof. Savvas N. Savvides as a Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO)-funded doctoral fellow. In 2012, I joined the Division of Structural Biology (STRUBI) at the University of Oxford (UK) as an EMBO- and Marie Curie Actions-funded postdoctoral fellow. There, I transitioned into molecular neuroscience and investigated the structural biology of synaptic protein complexes, in the lab of Prof. A. Radu Aricescu. In 2018, I joined the IINS as a team leader enabled by an Initiative of Excellence (IdEx) Junior Chair (University of Bordeaux) and a Neurocampus starting package (Conseil Régional de la Nouvelle Aquitaine). In 2019, I was recruited to the CNRS, was a laureate of the CNRS-Inserm ATIP-Avenir program and obtained an ERC Starting Grant.
