Simulation Neuroscience
Membrane Systems
Emmanuelle Logette is a scientific collaborator and post-doctoral fellow in the Membrane Systems group in the Simulation Neuroscience Division.

Ion Channels are membrane proteins that are master regulators of the electrical behavior of neurons. In the Membrane Systems section, the goal is to characterize ion channels kinetics in standardized and controlled conditions to provide comprehensive and consistent dataset of experiments to build realistic models of the diversity of electrical behaviors in neurons. 

As translational research, the group is also interested in the role of glucose in the regulation of ion channel activity; in order to better understand the impact of glucose metabolism dysregulation on the physiopathology of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer Diseases or depression.

As a molecular biologist, Emmanuelle has studied genes regulation in many different fields: apoptosis and oncogenesis during her PhD, then UV response and inflammation during her first post-doctoral position, before moving to neuroscience in the Laboratory of Neural Microcircuitry. She also worked part time as a Biologist on genetic risk predisposition in a start-up company (Gene Predictis.SA, Lausanne) for three years.

Emmanuelle has a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Burgundy, France. She gained her Masters in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University René Descartes, Paris, France.

In her free time, Emmanuelle enjoys reading, running and taking part in triathlons.

She is an active member of a patient organisation for a rare genetic disease “Association Française Sclérose Tubéreuse de Bourneville (ASTB)”
