Florian studied life science with focus on biochemistry and cellular biology at the University of Cergy-Pontoise where he obtained his bachelor and his master degree. For his master thesis a partnership between the University Paris-Sud and Nanobactérie (Hôpital Cochin) was formed under the supervision of Olivier Seksek (University Paris-Sud) and Edouard Alphandéry (Nanobactérie), where he helped to develop a method to measure intra-tumoral temperature variations with a thermic fluorescent sensor using hyperthermia induced by bacterial nanoparticles. He continued with a master degree in biochemistry and molecular biology with minor focus on pharmacology at the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC). For his second master thesis he joined the group of Viktor Magdolen at the Clinical Research Unit, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Technical University of Munich where he worked on the development of a protocol for the quantification of Kallikrein related-peptidases (KLK14) and on analysis of inhibitors against KLK4 as a novel therapy against ovarian cancer on KLK4-7-modulated gene expression. In January 2016 Florian started his PhD in the Structural Bioenergetics Group of Volker Zickermann at the Institute of Biochemistry II focusing on respiratory complex I from Yarrowia lipolytica and the evolutionary related Mrp cation/proton antiporter.
