The new LN Alumni platform
We are currently working on the opening of an LN alumni platform to support exchanges between our former doctoral students, but also with their thesis directors, on career paths, job experiences and opportunities. This platform will further serve to announce events of interest for LN alumni (like the LNAM meetings), and to keep you up to date with recent developments in the Lemanic research labs.
You might have received an announcement already if you obtained a former degree from UNIL. However, this platform will serve to put you in contact with your (ex-)colleagues independent of whether you received your PhD at the Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School in relation with UNIL, Unige or Unifr. Thus, if you want to connect to the LN Alumni community, click on the button on the right.

Since the first thesis defense in May 2005, more than 100 PhD students have graduated from the LN Doctoral School.
The public defense of our 100th graduate, Yves Gouriou, took place in May 8th 2013. Under the supervision of Nicolas Demaurex (Unige) and Philippe Bijlenga (HUG), Yves studied the role of t-type calcium channels in a cellular model of stroke.
In the picture, from left to right, Philippe Bijlenga (thesis co-director), Yves Gouriou (LN graduate), Anita Lüthi (expert), Nicolas Demaurex (thesis director), Philippe Lory and Laurent Bernheim (experts).
