Congratulations and farewell Prof. Fanny Langlet!

Prof. Fanny Langlet, previously Ambizione fellow in Thorens’ lab, has started her own lab at the UNIL, as SNSF Assistant Professor in the new Department of Biomedical Sciences.

She will work on her ERC project entitled «Tanycyte/arcuate Neuron communications in the regulation of energy balance (TANGO)», from March 1st 2021 at the Department of Biomedical Sciences.

Her lab will seek to better understand the anatomical and functional interaction between tanycytes and the neuronal populations regulating food intake. They will be particularly interested in the heterogeneity of these interactions, in the molecular mechanisms underlying the dialogue between these two cell types, as well as in the functional disturbances induced by obesity on this system.
