Andrea Slezia
senior research fellow

1995 to 2000 I was master student in biology and chemistry Eötvös Lóránd University in Budapest, Hungary. I finshed her PhD at Semmelweis University in Neuroscience. I participated in the laboratory work of Research Group of Neurobiology of the Hungarian Academy of Science in collaboration with University of Szeged and Univeristy of Pécs during her university years. Then I worked at Laboratory of Thalamus Research, Institute of Experimental Medicine, Hungarian Academy of Sciences (IEM-HAS). I published several important papers in epilepsy and thalamus research during her master and PhD years. I won a Marie Curie pre-docotral grant at Laboratoire d`Anatomo-Electrophysiologie Cellulaire et Integrée, INSERM U405, Faculté de Médecine. As a postdoc I continued to work on thalamocortical system then moved to France and worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Institut de Neurosciences des Systèmes, Inserm UMR_S 1106, Aix-Marseille Université. Nowadays I work at Neuroengineering Group, INS-Institut de Neuroscience des Systèmes, UMR INSERM 1106, where she is using state-of-the-art new generation devices to find a potential treatment for epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. I am married and a mother of three children.
