Email Léa


Dr. Lescouzères completed her PhD in Neurosciences (2017-2022) in Dr. Pascale Bomont’s lab at University Lyon 1 (NeuroMyoGene Institute, Lyon, France). In 2022, she joined Dr. Kessen Patten’s lab as a postdoctoral research fellow at the INRS-Institut Armand Frappier in Canada. She is currently working on zebrafish models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with the aim of identifying new physiopathological mechanisms induced by mutations in the C9ORF72 gene, and new therapeutic targets.
