The research in our group aims to gain a better
understanding of the pathophysiology of psychiatric
disorders, so as to contribute to the elaboration of new and
more effective drugs. Severe psychiatric disorders, such as
schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depressive
disorder belong to the few remaining endemic diseases where
the pathophysiology is still largely unknown.
Our projects serve to identify central and/or peripheral
biomarkers in psychiatric disorders, or in delineated
subgroups with shared phenotype or pathophysiology. The
importance of identified biomarkers is validated in animal
models where behavioral, biochemistry, electrophysiological
and micro-Positron Emission Tomography examinations are
Our multidisciplinary team is looking for an analytical
scientists experienced in mass spectrometry (LC-MS) with a
background in neuroscience.
