In September 2014, I joined the group of Dr. Oliver Howes, participating in research team 4. Our goal is to contribute to the identification, recruitment, and assessment of subjects who are DISC1 variant carriers and patients with schizophrenia and to characterize dopaminergic function. We will use [18F]-DOPA Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging, which is a neuroimaging technique allowing the measure of dopamine synthesis capacity. From background, I have graduated from the University of Geneva Faculty of Medicine.
