I am a research assistant engineer. My interest concerns the study of cortical development. I analyse proliferation, differentiation and migration in the developing cortex using cell biology techniques. I routinely perform immunohistochemistry, dissociated cell culture, organotypic culture of embryonic brain and time-lapse videomicroscopy. Recently I have focused my efforts on 2 photons imaging of GFP/RFP expressing precursors on organotypic slices. Besides performing experiments, I am also responsible for teaching the techniques to the new team members.
