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!


Your children came back to school  ? It is the same for Meryl Roudaut who also just begin his PhD training in collaboration with Pr Bertrand Cariou and Dr Karim Si-Tayeb from “l’institut du thorax”. The goal of his Ph D training is to develop and automate new innovative cellular 3D models from iPS cells coming from patient with familial hypercholesterolemia. This project is a little part of big project called CHOPIN! Thank you to them to give the opportunity to Meryl to do his Ph D and to start a collaboration between us! Thank you also to the ANRT, the French Research & Technology Agency, for their financial support to our R&D project. We wish a lot of succes to Meryl!
