A number of researchers in this team are bona fide world leaders in their respective subject areas, particularly in the specialties of tanycyte biology and hypothalamic development and plasticity. They are also well known and respected in the broader fields of fertility/reproduction and obesity respectively. Part of their strength is that they represent a very ‘outward-looking’ and cosmopolitan lab, with close interactions with the Saban Research Institute in Los Angeles California, USA. This is consequently reflected in the attractiveness of the lab to many researchers from outside France

Our lab was recently paid a visit by Fondation Recherche Médicale (FRM) ambassador Thierry Lhermitte. Thierry gave an inspirational speech about the importance of basic Scientific Research whilst attending a presentation on the recent work of the lab and learning about the techniques currently in use in our lab.
