Bravo Sybille! (Planar Polarity and Plasticity Team )

Congratulations to our M2 student, Sybille Marchese (Team Montcouquiol/Sans), who has won a doctoral contract at the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland with the young team of Dr Juan Alberto Varela, winner of the prestigious ERC programme (https://risweb.st-andrews.ac.uk/portal/en/persons/juan-alberto-varela(bf1154ef-1d43-41e1-b529-7dd9660cea91).html).

Sybille will use super-resolution imaging techniques to elucidate the extracellular trafficking of protein aggregates (beta-amyloid and alpha-synuclein) in the brain and their direct role in early neurodegeneration.

Good luck Sybille!

Thomas Bienvenu has just won a coveted CCA-Inserm-Bettencourt position. This position allows young doctors finishing the internship and holders of PhDs in health and science, to carry out a research project within the framework of their clinicat within a team of research. He will be able to share his time between his clinical activity in the service of Professor Bruno Aouizerate and his research activity in the team of Cyril Herry. On this journey, Thomas Bienvenu is now participating in the coordination of École Santé-Sciences of the University of Bordeaux.





The LabEx BRAIN Management Committee evaluated and selected, on Friday, July 5, the thesis welding scholarships. 12 applications had been submitted.

Ashley Castellanos Jankiewicz (Team Cota - Role of hypothalamic bile acid-TGR5 receptor signaling in the regulation of energy balance) and
Nanci Winke (Team Herry - Neuronal circuits involved in the emotional modulation of pain behavior) are among the winners!






Giovanni Marsicano is member of the prestigious EMBO, European Molecular Biology Organization. The EMBO Election is a recognition of the research excellence and outstanding achievements of a life sciences researcher.
