Team leader - After a master at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, Nicolas trained in developmental biology in the lab of Alain Chédotal at the Vision Institute in Paris. His work focused on the developmental plasticity of commissural projections, using mouse genetics. For his post-doc, he went to the lab of Marc Tessier-Lavigne at the Rockefeller University in New York. There, he co-developed the iDISCO and ClearMap platform for the labeling, imaging and analysis of intact biological samples using light sheet microscopy and tissue clearing. He opened his lab at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle Epiniere in Paris in January 2017.
Research Assistant / Ingénieur d'étude - Florine trained at the Ecole de Biologie Industrielle in Cergy. She worked then for 4 years in the Necker Imagine Institute on neurogenetics. She joined the lab in April 2017 and is working on genes controlling adult structural plasticity.
Graduate student - Thomas did his undergraduate studies at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the Université de Poitier. He became interested in developmental neurosciences during 2 rotations in the labs of Alain Chédotal (Institut de la Vision, Paris) and Marc Tessier-Lavigne (The Rockefeller University, New York). He joined the lab in January 2017 and is working on the relations between behavioral and axon structural plasticity in the mouse brain.
