Carmen
Sandi

Lab/Research director at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL)
Switzerland Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research : Behavioral neuroscience Cognitive neuroscience Disorders of the nervous system Neural/synaptic structure and function Neuroendocrinology Neuropharmacology and neurochemistry , Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans Analysis of behavior and cognition in non-human animal Biochemistry Imaging (microscopy) Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc) In vivo monitoring Molecular approaches Pharmacology

Raquel Adaia
Sandoval Ortega

Graduate student at University of Bern
Switzerland Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research : Cellular and molecular neuroscience Circuit neuroscience , Analysis of behavior and cognition in non-human animal Data analysis and statistics Electrophysiology (channels) Electrophysiology (slow waves) Electrophysiology (unit activity) In vivo monitoring Species : vertebrate
Reason of joining Alba Network :
I want to join Alba because the gender inequalities in academia are too large for the "modern" society we live in. I hope that by joining this network I can contribute in any way possible to close the gender gap.

Kyriaki
Sidiropoulou

Professor or equivalent position at University of Crete
Greece Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research : Behavioral neuroscience Computational neuroscience and modeling Disorders of the nervous system Excitable membranes and ion channels History, teaching, public awareness, and societal , Analysis of behavior and cognition in non-human animal Computation, modeling, and simulation Electrophysiology (channels) Electrophysiology (synaptic physiology) Electrophysiology (unit activity) Histochemistry and tracing Imaging (microscopy) Species : vertebrate
Reason of joining Alba Network :
Living in Greece makes it hard sometimes to have access to several scientific meetings, thus, I believe that such networks increase my visibility to the scientific community.
