Our research themes focus on the rheology of complex materials and biological fluids, at different length and time scales ; they answer fundamental and applied questions in physics, biophysics, and medicine.

  • Glass transition in colloids : aging, dynamic heterogeneities, fluctuation-dissipation relations ; out-of-equilibrium statistical physics
  • Rheology and microrheology of complex and biological fluids
  • Biophysics of insect secretion : link with insect adhesion and acclimation
  • Intracellular nanorheology in red blood cells, application to sickle cell anemia

WE ARE HIRING : Research Engineer in Biophysics from May 2022 to work on the project ’Red Blood Cell Nanorheology’, 18 months (9 months renewable), funded by IdEx Université Paris Cité (SINAY project 2022, B. Abou : PI), please contact :, more information on the right :

Molecular rotors as intracellular probes of red blood cell stiffness, A. Briole, T. Podgorski, & B. Abou, Soft Matter 17, 4525-4537 (2021).

An article on the ’Melting properties of cuticular hydrocarbon layer’ by my colleague Florian Menzel (Mainz university) on our ant study (2020).

Our book on the relationship between Sex and Gender : from biology to sociology (in French) with my colleague H. Berry (INRIA).


If you are interested in working on the biophysics of insect secretion or the nanorheology of red blood cells, please contact me : berengere.abou(at)
