Aude Echalier received an M.S degree in structural biology in France. Then, she joined the University of Warwick (Coventry, UK) to obtain her Ph.D. degree in bacterial cytochrome c peroxidases. She structurally characterised them in different redox states to gain insight into their regulation. Moving in 2004 to the University of Oxford (Oxford, UK) for a postdoctoral training, she worked on protein kinases at the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics headed by Professor Dame L. Johnson and then Professor M. Noble. During this time in Oxford, Echalier studied the structure, function, and inhibition of cell cycle cyclin-dependent kinases, as well as malarial kinases. In 2009 Echalier was appointed to a Lectureship position joined between the University of Montpellier and the CNRS where she is pursuing her interest in cell cycle regulation and developing a research program on protein degradation. She is using X-ray crystallography, biochemistry, and biophysical and computational approaches to characterize protein interactions implicated in cell signaling.
