Neurogenomics and neuronal physiopathology

neurogénomique - physiopathologie neuronale

Name:

Neurogenomics and neuronal physiopathology

Leader:

  • Frédéric Laumonnier

Research axis :

Identification and characterization of clinical, genetic, molecular and physiopathological markers targeting glutamatergic connexions and glutamate metabolism in two brain disorders appearing in periods far apart in neuronal and CNS development: Intellectual Disability (ID) during neurodevelopment, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) during early neuronal aging.

Keywords: Human neurogenetics, neurosciences, neuronal cellular models, metabolomics, neuronal physiopathology, glutamatergic synapse

Expertise / know-how:

Gene sequencing (NGS), gene expression analyses, preparation and transfection of primary neuronal cultures (hippocampal, cortical neurons, motoneurons), cellular neurobiology (synaptic morphology, confocal microscopy), metabolomics, animal models.
