General Manager, Scientific Projects Director
Constance Hammond is an emeritus Research Director at INSERM attached to the Mediterranean Institute of Neurobiology (Inmed, France). She has acquired an extensive experience in electrophysiology in particular at the Marey Institute (Paris, France), the ENS (Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris), the INSERM unit U488 (Paris) and then at Inmed – INSERM U901 (Marseille, France). Renowned specialist in the function of basal ganglia neurons, and notably of neurons from the subthalamic nucleus and the striatum, her work has considerably advanced the understanding of mechanisms behind Parkinson’s disease. She has joined the B&A Therapeutics’ team to develop research on pathological electrophysiological signs of basal ganglia neurons and to study the effects of the diuretic Bumetanide on these signs. She is also the author of the textbook “Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology” (4th edition, Elsevier) and the MOOC of cellular Neurophysiology (FUN). In addition, she has created and is the current President of the Association “Tous Chercheurs”.
