Our laboratory is located in "La Timone" Medical School in Marseilles, in a research unit of the French Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and of Aix-Marseille University.

Our research unit is called "Medical Genetics & Functional Genomics".


Our group studies rare diseases affecting the children’s brain and leading to intellectual deficiency. We combine approaches in the fields of clinical genetics, pediatric neurology, molecular genetics, neurophysiology, molecular biology, animal behavior analysis and therapeutic development. The two major research programs of our group are Rett syndrome (RTT) and early onset epileptic encephalopathies (EOEE).


We have three major objectives :

1- to increase the knowledge in the field of rare genetic diseases affecting the children’s brain,

2- to improve diagnosis and prognosis for these diseases,

3- to develop new therapeutic strategies.
