David Perahia, Research Director of CNRS currently working at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan has experienced close collaborations with brazilian researchers in the last years. David has organized several bilateral courses and events, but also supervised PhD students in “co-tutelar” programs! Moreover, he has performed outstanding research concerning molecular dynamics simulations and was the pioneer on normal modes analysis of protein movements.
Therefore, his opinion and perspectives about french-brazilian collaborations are important for us! Please, check the full interview at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agnbIL9gFLs
