Teacher at Université Grenoble-Alpes for the course Membrane & Nanopores - Nanosciences Nanotechnologies Master

Bio and main research focus
Camille Raillon received her M.S. in Electrical Engineering with Honors in 2007 from Grenoble Institute of Technology (INPG). She did her Master’s thesis at the University of Sherbrooke on fast prototyping of microfluidic channels in SU-8 photoresist for BioMEMS thanks to a Région Rhône-Alpes grant. After graduating, Camille worked as a characterization engineer for a year in a MEMS-based piezoresistive pressure sensors company in Silicon Valley, California. She then moved back to Europe for a Ph.D. in bioengineering, working at EPFL in Prof. Aleksandra Radenovic’s laboratory and at UNIL in Prof. Nouria Hernandez laboratory. There, her work focused on single‐molecule study of protein-DNA complexes using nanopore sensing.
Her research took a turn to more clinical applications during her postdoctoral activities. First in cancer genetics, conducting research on urine of bladder cancer patients at CHUV and then at EPFL in collaboration with an American startup (Vortex Biosciences) on the conception, fabrication and integration of an impedance spectroscopy module into a microfluidic technology for the isolation and enumeration of Circulating Tumor Cells from blood.
Camille has been recruited in 2017 at CEA where her main research focuses on nanopores, microfluidics and impedance spectroscopy.

Experimental Methods & Skills
Cleanroom fabrication from design to process: e-beam and UV lithography, dry and wet etching on Silicon, Quartz and LiNbO3 substrate for electrical and optical applications. Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). PDMS microfluidics.
Instrumentation: electron microscopy techniques (SEM, TEM) for the fabrication and characterization of nanopores and other nanosized devices. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) for nanomechanical property mapping. Designed and setup platforms for impedance measurements and nanopore sensing.
Molecular and cell biology: Genomic DNA extraction, DNA cloning, in vitro transcription, PCR, DNA microarray (Affymetrix GeneChip platform), cell culture and staining.
Software: Open-source software development for level detection in nanopore signals using MATLAB and Python, both for data acquisition and signal processing.
