Franck Zal, born in 1966, is a French scientist and doctor in marine biology. Founder of Hemarina, he first built his scientific recognition on his expertise in the field of invertebrate respiratory pigments before specializing in marine invertebrate hemoglobin and their transport of oxygen. His work earned him the CNRS bronze medal in 2001. He was President of the scientific journal Bretagne Biosciences for many years.
Franck Zal obtained his PhD in 1996 from the University of Paris VI for his work on the structure-function relationships of extracellular hemoglobins of annelids. He then continued his work for 3 years postdoctoral, first at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) for 2 years, then for 1 year at the University of Antwerp in Belgium.
Dr. and researcher in marine biology, Franck Zal studied for 14 years the respiratory pigments of invertebrates before specializing in the study of the hemoglobin of marine invertebrates and its transport of oxygen. He first worked at the CNRS at the Station biologique de Roscoff (University Paris-VI) before creating in 2007 his biotechnology company, Hemarina, in Morlaix, France.
