Head of Mechanobiology



+49 (0)761 270 63953


Research Interests:

  • Identification and characterisation of cardiac cell mechano-sensors
  • Mechano-stimulation of cells and tissues 
  • Characterisation of the adaptation of biological processes to mechanical forces 
  • Characterisation of cell and tissue mechanical properties in different mechanical environment

Brief CV:

Rémi studied physiology at the Limoges Faculty of Science and Technology (2000-2004), and then he completed his Master and PhD at the Orsay Faculty of Science (Paris XI) in 2005 and 2009, respectively. In 2010, he joined Dr Eric Honoré at the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology (IPMC), Sophia-Antipolis, with the support of an AFM (Association Française contre les Myopathies) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to investigate the role and relevance of mechano-transduction mechanisms in Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease. In 2013, he obtained an Imperial College’s Junior Research Fellowship and joined Prof. Peter Kohl’s group to identify mechano-sensors in heart valves. Since 2016 Rémi Peyronnet heads the Cell Biophysics section at the IEKM in Freiburg.
