By studying model animals (flies, mice, birds, amphibians and fish), at all life stages from egg to old adult, using comparative, genetic and molecular approaches and methods including imaging, genome edition and transgenesis, transcriptomics and functional analyses in vivo, our research projects aim to understand:
- Neural stem cell biology
- Neurogenesis, differentiation of neural cells, and brain morphogenesis
- Brain homeostasis and maintenance of neuronal functions in physiological and pathological conditions
- Interactions between the nervous, immune and vascular systems.
- Molecular signalling pathways involved in neuronal functions.
