Alexis Assens, PhD

Research Scientist in Transcriptomics
Alexis is thrilled to contribute to the development of new transcriptomics tools within the Neurobiology team.

Alexis Assens joined the Wyss Center as a Research Scientist in Transcriptomics in March 2022.

He holds a PhD in Life Sciences in the field of olfaction from the UNIGE, where he worked on a newly discovered agonist-dependent transcripts modulation occurring in activated olfactory sensory neurons. He has almost ten years of scientific research experience in various transcriptomic technologies such as in situ hybridization and bulk and single-cell RNA-sequencing.

Alexis is thrilled to participate in new collaborative projects linked to the study of neurodegenerative diseases where he can share his expertise in the field of transcriptomics.
