Prof.Dr. Nadia Bahi-Buisson

I am Child Neurologist. I am conducting the rare disease program on Rett syndrome and brain malformation at Necker Enfants Malades University Hospital, APHP, Paris. I am also conducting research works in the Imagine Institute - INSERM UMR-1163 in A Pierani team, on Genetics and Pathophysiology of brain malformations Paris Descartes University. I am part of the group "Genetics and Cerebral cortex development" (A Pierani) of the Imagine Institute (INSERMU1163 directed by Stanislas Lyonnet).I am interested in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of brain development, especially neurogenesis, and neuronal migration. My main goal is to understand the molecular basis of Malformations of Cortical Development which are important causes of intellectual disability and account for 20-40% of drug-resistant childhood epilepsy. We conduct integrated multidisciplinary studies involving cellular and molecular biologists, foetal pathologists and radiologists. I use a wide range of approaches including genetics, biochemistry and cellular biology to better understand the signalling pathways involved in these processes and how their dysregulations can lead to pathologies. As a medical doctor and a researcher, I have established collaborations with clinicians and geneticists providing us with a transversal appreciation of our researches. The main subjects of my project are:[1] the identification of new genes and molecular actors involved in normal migration processes and being altered on MCDs;[2] a better understanding of the link between genotype and phenotype, and of the process leading to an abnormal migration pattern;
