Prof. Dr. Isabelle Mansuy
Prof. Dr. Isabelle Mansuy, a french national, studied at the Université Louis Pasteur (ULP), Strasbourg, France and at the École Superieure de Biotechnologie de Strasbourg where she got degrees in Biotechnology Engineering and Molecular Biology. She has been promoted to a Full Professor of Neuroepigenetics (dual professorship with the University of Zurich) in 2013. She started working as an Assistant Professor in Cellular Neurobiology at the Institute of Cell Biology in 1998. Since 1 April 2005 she was Associate Professor for Molecular and Cognitive Neurosciences at the department of Health Sciences and Technology at ETH Zurich (also as dual-professorship with the Faculty of Medicine, University of Zurich).
In 1994, she obtained an European PhD in Molecular and Developmental Neurobiology from the ULP for a thesis work performed at the Friedrich Miescher Institute, Novartis, Basel. She then moved to the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior at Columbia University, New York. The Mansuy lab studies the epigenetic basis of complex brain functions and how acquired behaviors are transmitted across generations in mammals at the highest international level. Her broad spectrum of methods extends from epigenetic and genetic methods, behavioral testing, -omics, bioinformatics, and imaging techniques. Through this multidisciplinary approach, combined with an extensive international network, she has succeeded in achieving pioneering research results.
