Our project ACRoBAT was just awarded funding from ERANET-Neuron to study the mechanisms of hippocampal epileptogenesis upon brain trauma. Our consortium includes the labs of Claudio Rivera (Marseilles, FR) , Liset M de La Prida (Madrid, SP), Christian Hübner (Jena, DE) and Francois Guillemot (London, UK).

July 7, 2016
Our team was awarded funding for Basic Research in Epilepsy from the Fondation Française pour la Recherche sur l'Epilepsie to study the role of chloride transport in cortical rhythmogenesis and the emergence of seizures.

Our lab is located in the Institut du Fer à Moulin, a research center affiliated ton INSERM and Sorbonne Université in the heart of the Latin Quarter in Paris.
