After 5 years in Grenoble, we are officially moving to Marseille! Many thanks to all my collaborators at the GIN for the good moments and great work!
Excited for the future, and to move to the Neurotech Center of La Timone Medical campus. Welcoming postdocs, techs, and students to study how adult brain circuits rewire during learning or when confronted to environmental changes.
Goodbye snowy mountains, hello turquoise sea !
After many twists and turns during this hectic COVID-19 period, Eve finally defends her thesis (though remotely) entitled “Régulation du transport axonal par l’activité neuronale : Implication pour le développement des réseaux neuronaux” Committee: Dr. Zsolt Lenkei (Paris), Dr. Xavier Nicol (Paris Univ), Dr. Christophe Leterrier (Aix-Marseille Univ), Dr. Annie Andrieux (President, Grenoble Alpes Univ), Pr.

Our collaborator Benoit Charlot (IES, Montpellier) visits us and presents his work entitled “Micro and nanotechnologies for life sciences : single molecule combing, microfluidics for neurosciences and infrared stimulation of action potential in neurons”
Joining the Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience in F. Saudou's Team "Intracellular Dynamics and Neurodegeneration" to study how neuronal activity controls axon remodeling in mature circuits. Specifically, we will explore how vesicular trafficking responds to electrical signals to address essential materials to active axonal branches, using high-resolution fast videomicroscopy in brain-on-a-chip devices.
