The GIN’s Scientific Leadership

Frédéric Saudou, Professor at the University Grenoble Alpes and Hospital Practitioner at Grenoble University Hospital, is Director of the Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience (GIN) since October 2013.

Marylin Vantard, Director of Research at CNRS, is Deputy Director of the GIN since September 2014.

Scientific and institutional decisions are taken by the Scientific and Directory Committee (CoDir) which includes the director, the deputy director, the administrative director and the GIN team's leaders. The CoDir works closely with the consultative Laboratory Committee (CoLab) which consists of the directors and elected representative of the GIN staff.

The International Scientific Advisory Board, composed of 8 scientists well recognized at the international level, gathers every two years in order to advise the director on the different scientific programs of the GIN developed both at the national and international levels.

Director's message

Understanding molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in different physiological functions is necessary to develop new therapies. Studying these physiological functions in different organisms and pathologies is crucial in order to test their validity. In fact, many pathologies remain poorly understood and many of them do not have curative treatments, in spite of their significant impact on patients’ lives and families.

Gathering expert scientists in basic and clinical neuroscience is the GIN’s specialty. The 200 researchers, professors, clinicians, engineers, technicians, students and administrative personnel, who are all members of the GIN, have the following main goals:

  • Produce high-quality research in neuroscience based on multidisciplinary approaches.
  • Promote translational research with developing, new innovative therapies for pathologies refractory to existing treatments as a long-term objective.
  • Train and educate the next generation of neuroscience researchers and clinicians and thus promote the emergence and growth of well-known young scientists and clinicians.
  • Actively participate in creating a center of excellence in the field of neuroscience at local, national and international levels.
  • To become involved in communicating with the public, not only to promote the research conducted by the GIN, but to also strengthen scientific communication and share knowledge with citizens.
