Elodie obtained her Master’s degree in Physiology, Physiopatholoy and Neurosciences at Lille 2 University in 2007. Then she joined the Blood-Brain Barrier Laboratory (LBHE, EA2465, Artois University) to prepare a PhD in Life Sciences that she defended in 2011: her project was dealing with the development of new in vitro blood-brain barrier (BBB) models for the study of cellular interactions in health and disease.

A first postdoctoral position in Mannheim Children’s Hospital (Germany, 2012-2013) allowed her to work on neuroblastoma brain metastasis. Back to France she worked on different topics using cellular models, from breast cancer brain metastasis (2014-2015) to the impact of ischemia on BBB cells (2016-2017), making her an expert in cell biology and complex in vitro systems.

She’s recently joined us as a study director!
