Eric Leclerc received his Master and PhD degrees in organic and bioorganic chemistry from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6, France). He defended his PhD thesis in 2001 on the asymmetric synthesis of alpha-aminonitriles and the diastereoselective synthesis of beta,gamma-diaminoalcohols, under the guidance of Dr. P. Mangeney. After postdoctoral studies at The University of Hawaii at Manoa (US) in the research group of Prof. Marcus Tius working on the synthesis of allenylcyclopentenones by Nazarov reaction, he took up a permanent position as a CNRS researcher in 2003 at IRCOF (Rouen, France) in the team Bioorganic Chemistry of fluor, where he developped new fluorinated glycoconjugates. In 2011, he moved to the ICGM (Institut Charles Gerhardt Montpellier, France), still as a CNRS researcher, in the team of J.-M. Campagne. His research interests include the development of new methodologic tools toward the assymmetric synthesis of fluorinated compounds, and asymmetric catalysis using metallic complexes.
