Since 2017, my mission is to assist researchers of the REMEMBeR team in their projects by standardizing behavioral paradigms, training new lab members and students to perform behavioral testing, and by developing new behavioral procedures in mice.
Concomitantly, I am in charge of the Mouse Behavioral Core (MBC) of the CBI - Toulouse. The MBC’s goal is to help academic and industrial researchers to design and conduct their scientific projects by providing state of the art equipment, standardized methods and expertise to assess various aspects of mouse behavior.
