Bron Claude, Professor Emeritus

Claude Bron studied biochemistry at the University of Lausanne and received his Ph.D in 1967. He then joined the laboratory of Dr M.D. Poulik at the Child Research Center (Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan) to work on the structure and function of red cell membrane. In 1970, he returned to the Institute of Biochemistry as Assistant Professor and set up a laboratory centered on the biochemistry of lymphocyte membrane proteins. He was promoted Full Professor of Immunobiology (formerly Biochemistry) in 1974 and was chairman of the Institute from 1988 to 2003. His research was focused on the role of membrane lipid rafts in glycolipid anchored and transmembrane receptor-mediated lymphocyte signaling.
