Dr Marie Schaeffer

Marie trained in immunology at the Universities of Glasgow (Coombs lab) and UC Berkeley (Robey lab), before becoming an INSERM group leader at the Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle (IGF) in Montpellier. She has a strong track record of applying innovative intravital imaging approaches to the study of brain and pancreatic function, with particular emphasis on food intake and type 1 diabetes, and the role of the vasculature and immune system in these processes.
