The Moyon lab opened in June 2023 at the Institute of NeuroPhysiopathology (INP), on the hospital Timone campus Aix-Marseille University (Marseille, Paris). We aim at better understanding the role of oligodendroglial cells in the central nervous system, and how their functions are dysregulated in aging and in age-related diseases. We are also committed to promote diversity and inclusivity in science, by building personalized mentorship agreements with each team member.
The INP is a center of training and research that combines basic and translational research to study the organization, function, and interaction of neural cells, as well as the molecular and cellular basis of major brain diseases. The INP is part of the Centre of Excellence in Neurodegeneration (CoEN) and offers an internationally competitive research environment with state-of-the-art facilities. The project will be developed at the Faculty of Medicine, located in the centre of Marseille, a few kilometers from the magnificent seafront, the Calanques National Park and the charm of inland Provence, all ideally suited to outdoor and cultural activities.
