Research Assistant in biochemistry starting in 1987, I first worked on proteomic and crustacean endocrinology at the "Laboratoire de Biochimie et Physiologie du Développement URA CNRS 686", Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris. After an experience in cryobiology of sea organisms at the "Centre Océanologique du Pacifique de l’IFREMER (French Polynesia)" as Engineer, I joined the "Université Paris Est" in 1991 as Assistant Engineer. Here, I first worked on biochemistry of muscle differentiation and I was led to be responsible of a pole of image facilities in the laboratory.

I have been developing image processing and analysis tools using the ImageJ macro language since 2005. Engineer since 2006 at the "Faculté des Sciences et Technologie, Université Paris Est Créteil", I’m now managing the confocal microscopy imaging facility of the Gly-CRRET (ex CRRET) laboratory.

I’m author of several contributions to the ImageJ project, and provide to the community some plugins, like Angiogenesis Analyzer, Protein Array Analyzer, Scale Bar Tools for Microscopes among others.

logoij ImageJ ( is a public domain Java image processing program inspired by NIH Image for the Macintosh. It runs, either as an online applet or as a downloadable application, on any computer with a Java 1.1 or later virtual machine. Downloadable distributions are available for Windows, Mac OS, Mac OS X and Linux. The author, Wayne Rasband (, is at the Research Services Branch, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
