TRI, Princeton NJ
Samuel Gourion-Arsiquaud is using various spectroscopic and microscopic techniques for the characterization and
the analysis of modi cations in biomaterials associated with speci c conditions like aging, disease, environmental stress or chemical treatment (product application or drug therapy).
Dr. Gourion-Arsiquaud’s expertise lies in multiple biophysical techniques with a special emphasis on vibrational spectroscopies (FTIR & Raman) for bio- material sciences; bone, teeth, nail, hair and skin. He has more than 10 years of research experience, including technique development, project design and coordination, as well as a successful track record of achievements.
After a doctorate in Biochemistry/Biophysics (France), he began his career at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS/Cornell University) studying the mechanisms of biomineralization in bone and teeth. Then, he became associate researcher at Rutgers University, where he examined the structural and functional analysis of lipid/protein interactions involved in the host – defense mechanism, as well as the biophysical aspects of skin to understand its physiological barrier function.
Since 2011, Dr. Gourion-Arsiquaud joined TRI where he is developing innovative tests, research areas and product evaluations relevant to cosmetic sciences and material analysis; from technology development to product design and performance evaluation on hair, nail and skin care products.
