Olivier Walker serves currently as Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry of the University of Lyon (France). He received his Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the University of Nancy (France) in 2001 where he developed new NMR methodologies to study the molecular tumbling of small molecules in the liquid state. He joined Pr. David Fushman's lab in 2002 as a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on protein/protein interactions and more particularly proteins involved in the Ubiquitin system. In 2004, he moved to the Institut des Sciences Analytiques where he focused his research on protein/protein (proteins involved in lysosomal degradation) and protein/ligand interactions (proteins of the Bcl family) by nuclear magnetic resonance and computational methods.
