Personal profile


Dr Marion Boudes is a structural biologist, with expertise in cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM), X-ray crystallography, SAXS, and protein biochemistry. Her current research interests include using cryo-EM to elucidate the structure and dynamics of large protein complexes involved in genome regulation. 

During her PhD in Structural Biology from University Paris-Sud (2008-2011), Dr Boudes studied key activators of transcription in bacterial pathogens. She subsequently joined the Structural Virology Laboratory at Monash University under Associate Professor Fasséli Coulibaly’s supervision, where she specialised in X-ray microcrystallography and developed the innovative method of in cellulo crystallography.

In 2017, Dr Boudes joined the laboratory of Dr Dominika Elmlund and Dr Hans Elmlund, both of whom are internationally recognised experts in the field of single-particle cryo-Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM). Since that time, Dr Boudes has gained significant skills in cryo-EM as well as transcription biochemistry, and has also designed original methods for sample stabilisation. Dr Boudes is currently supported by a Senior Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences (FMNHS).
