Amandine Bery

Being recently recruited (September 1st, 2019) as assistant professor in the team “Vision, Light and the Brain”, I am investigating a transcriptional regulatory network regulating intracellular transport pathway in response to light/dark cycle in the retina.
Since 13 years I was exploring the development of the cerebral cortex at different levels: genomic, epigenomic, molecular and cellular, in both animal and human models. During that time, I specialized in the study of intracellular transport in cortical and motor neurons and its link with malformation of cerebral development and have acquired strong expertise in in/ex vivo electroporation, molecular biology, transcriptional regulation, in silico analysis and microscopy.
My inspiration is drawn from many different areas and trail running in Vosges and reading thrillers are definitely part of them.
