Jean - Sébastien completed his Bachelor and Master of Science at The University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium) in Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Biotechnology, majoring in molecular biology and animal physiology. His Masters research project was undertaken in the research group of functional genomics and proteomics (KU Leuven), where he studied the involvement of a set of novel disease-modifying genes on the mechanisms of cognitive decline in C. elegans. Currently, his research interests include the role of mitochondria in axonal regeneration and the mechanisms involved in the change of membrane lipid composition during axonal regeneration.
Sébastien joined the Neumann lab in October 2016.
