Episode 32: Dr. Emmanuel Reynaud

@ReynaudEmmanuel is a Lecturer and Assistant Professor at the School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science at University College Dublin.

Emmanuel has many interests based on an upbringing with nature in rural France, ranging from the ocean and glass models, imaging with LEGO, 3D bioprinting, and running a multidisciplinary lab! Tune in to this episode to hear all about it, as well as carbon footprints and making sausages!

My final goal is to go back to my childhood to understand and follow biology from the start in a real context… can I follow a rabbit from development to the end of his life without having to carry six tons of equipment?


Dr. Reynaud’s research focused on the development of new imaging methods and optical micromanipulations in cell biology. His lab currently applies light sheet microscopy and 3D biological imaging technologies to the understanding of the biological world from single cell to tissue engineered epithelial microtissues (e.g. 3D Bioprinting). He has authored over 80 peer-reviewed articles in English and in French, including articles in Science and Nature Methods, edited and illustrated several books and is actively involved in teaching worldwide, one of his reviews has been cited over a 1,000 times! He is a Fellow of the Royal Microscopy Society and runs the Light Sheet Microscopy community and the ‘Rlab’ (

Dr Reynaud’s interests include: Evolution of cell compartmentalization, Evolution of epithelial structure and function, Integrative 3D biological imaging, 3D bioprinting uses in Epithelial Tissue Engineering & Tissue Engineering Organ-on-Chip, Lab-on-a-Chip Systems, and Blaschka Marine Invertebrates models.
