Antoine Taly was born in Clamart, France, in 1975. He graduated from Orsay University, France, in 1999. He received a Ph.D. degree in experimental and computational biophysics from Orsay University, France, and Heidelberg University, Germany, in 2003 and joined Jean-Pierre Changeux's laboratory in Paris, where he modeled the structure and gating mechanism of the nicotinic receptor. From 2006 to 2009, Taly has been pursuing this project in the laboratory of Martin Karplus at the University of Strasbourg, France. Currently, Taly is a CNRS researcher focusing on the modeling of ligand-gated ion channels (nicotinic, GABA, and P2X receptors). He has a general interest in the modeling of protein structure/function relationships including allostery. The methods he uses include homology modeling, docking, normal mode analysis, and molecular dynamics.
