Alumni (since 2014)
Rodrigo Roberto Bammann, PhD
Rodrigo obtained his PhD at University of Leicester, UK and joined the lab in january 2015. He returned to England in february 2016. He performed calcium imaging in adult-born neurons.
Karen Bakhshetyan, MSc
Karen joined the lab in january 2012 after obtaining his MSc degree at State Engineering University of Armenia.
He is interested in the migration and maturation of newborn cells in the adult olfactory bulb.
Linda Suzanne David
Linda joined the lab in 2007 as a MSc student. In 2009 she started her PhD that she completed in 2014. She studied the role of extracellular molecule in the adult and early postnatal neurogenesis in the olfactory bulb. She is now a postdoctoral fellow at Université Laval.
Vincent joined the lab in 2007, first as a MSc student and since 2009 as a PhD student. He studied the functional role of adult-born neurons, as well as how these cells mature and integrate into the bulbar network. He completed his studies in 2014. He is now a postdoctoral fellow at MIT.
