About me

    Morgane Rosendale, PhD in Neuroscience

Postdoctoral fellow at RIKEN - BSI
Team: Laboratory for Cell Function Dynamics

Since July 2016, I am a JSPS postdoctoral fellow at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Wako, Saitama, Japan. I am working on a collaborative project involving the teams of Dr. Yasunory Hayashi and Dr. Atsuhi Miyawaki for the developpment of novel FRET probes to study the dynamics of molecular interactions occuring during the formation and consolidation of memory. Previoulsly, I was a PhD student at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Neuroscience in Bordeaux, France. My PhD project, entitled "Visualisation and Perturbation of the Spatio-Temporal Dynamics of Endocytosis", was performed under the supervision of Dr. David Perrais in the team of Dr. Daniel Choquet. It was focused on the developpment of novel biosensors, photoactivatable molecules and imaging methods for the study of endocytic mechanisms in neurons as well as other cell types. Prior to that, I obtained an engineering degree in chemistry (2006) from the Ecole Nationale Supérieur de Chimie de Rennes (ENSCR), specialising in chemistry and technology for life sciences.
