Dr. Véronique Schaeffer
Véronique did her PhD in joint supervision between the University of Basel (Switzerland) and the University of Strasbourg (France) investigating the role of endogenous neurosteroids in the regulation of neurodegenerative processes. Afterwards, Véronique worked in the group of Michel Goedert (MRC - Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK) where she has developed and characterized a transgenic mouse model of TDP-43 proteionopathy. She also conducted another project investigating the effect of autophagy stimulation on neurodegeneration in a mouse model of tauopathy. Véronique is now doing a second postdoc in the lab of Ivan Dikic where she intends to investigate further autophagic pathways.
