Bio

Dr Nancy Osorio received her PhD from the Aix-Marseille University, in France, studying the role of particular sodium channels expressed in the cerebellar granule cells. In 2008, she joined the Center for Research in Neurophysiology-Neurobiology of Marseille (CNRS-AMU, UMR 7286) as an electrophysiologist specialized in the patch-clamp techniques. In the Delmas’ team, she developed the patch-clamp recording from mouse enteric neurons in situ, allowing study of these neurons in intact myenteric ganglia. She used this technique to reveal the role of the TTX-resistant sodium channels, Nav1.5 and Nav1.9, in specialized myenteric neurons, providing evidence that these channels are potential targets for the development of therapeutic treatments. She is now a research engineer in the Laboratory of Cognitive Neurosciences (CNRS-AMU, UMR 7291), and she is interested in mouse genetic models of gut dysfunctions.
