Virginie Briffaud, Researcher

PhD, Doctor in Neurosciences

Virginie is an ex vivo and in vivo electrophysiologist. After a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Lyon 1 (France), Virginie worked for 5 years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Karolinska Institute of Stockholm (Sweden). Trained as a neurophysiologist, Virginie is experienced in  in vivo electrophysiology (intracellular, single and multi-electrode recordings) and  ex vivo (Patch-clamp recordings). Since 2015, Virginie joined the ex vivo platform.of E-PHY-SCIENCE performing field and whole-cell patch-clamp recordings to answer the need of our partner.
