Research interests 

I obtained my M.D degree with a specialization diploma in Neurology from the University of Nantes (France) in 1994, then a Ph.D. degree in 1996 and worked as a post-doc in the US on the role of the complement system in the central nervous system from 1996 to 2000 (Scott Barnum’s lab, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA).

I am professor of Cytology/Histology at the Lyon-Est  School of Medicine (University Claude Bernard Lyon-1) and senior staff at the department of Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering of the University Hospital of Lyon (HCL). 

In collaboration with Laurent Pays, associate professor at the Lyon-1 university, I am using bioinformatics and data mining approaches to investigate the impact of immunity on cognition. 

A current focus of interest is to assess the role of physiological autoimmunity on the development and maintenance of cognitive functions. More information are available at the following URL:
