Research

I received my PhD (June 2019) entitled “development of microtechnologies for the study of axonal guidance”. I developed several technologies using micropatterning and microfluidics to study the effect of several guidance molecules on axonal growth in vitro. These microtechnologies allow to isolate axons from the somas of the neurons in order to study the axons reaction to guidance cues, such as ephrin and netrin.
