Olivier Manzoni

Pathophysiology of Synaptic Plasticity, Institut de Neurobiologie de la Méditerranée. Marseille, France

Olivier Manzoni, from the Institut de Neurobiologie de la Méditerranée (INMED) in Marseille, France, aims to understand the molecular and cellular basis of a fundamental property of neuronal networks: synaptic plasticity. His specific goal is to unravel synaptic dysfunctions and propose new therapeutic venues for synaptopathies. His integrated approach is composed of three lines of research: Portraits of physiological synaptic networks; Identification of synaptopathies in neuropsychiatric diseases; and Pharmacological rescue. 

He has been invited by Patricia Robledo (IMIM).
