Louis was trained as a biologist in Angers, then in Lyon. Following completion of his master in Neurosciences within the lab, he immediately engaged in a PhD and then in a PostDoc. His current work is about testing the ability of postnatal neural stem cells to produce diverse neural cell types under pathological and non-pathological conditions, as well as following intranasal delivery of small bioactive molecules. He is using a combination of fate mapping approaches and immunohistochemistry to compare select populations of forebrain stem and progenitors cells and their differentiation potential. In parallel, Louis is also interested in developing innovative approaches to study the impact of perinatal brain injuries on cortical neuron maturation and network formation.
