Vincent Zoete obtained an engineer degree in chemistry from the ENSCL (Lille, France) in 1995, together with a DEA in Organic and Macromolecular chemistry. He started a PhD in organic chemistry in 1995 in the Laboratoire de Chimie Organique et Macromoléculaire of the university of Lille I. In the meantime, he obtained a Masters degree in Drug Design in 1996 in Lille. After a one-year interruption in 1997/1998 where he became a Navy Officer at the Headquarter of the French Navy in Paris, he finished his PhD in 1999. Afterwards, he moved to Strasbourg and started a Postdoc in Molecular Modelling in Martin Karplus group. At the same time, he also worked for Enanta Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA, USA). In 2003/2004, he continued his Postdoc both in Markus Meuwly group in Basel and Martin Karplus group in Strasbourg. In 2004, he joined the SIB as a Responsable de Recherche in the Molecular Modelling group, and became Associate Group Leader in 2011. He works in the development of protein engineering (MM-GBSA, CMEPS) and drug design techniques (EADock, fragment-based drug design), and performs several applications in both fields in collaboration with different experimental research groups.
