Pierre Mégevand, MD, PhD
Professor Pierre Mégevand obtained his MD and PhD in neuroscience from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and trained as a neurologist at Geneva University Hospitals. He also acquired expertise on invasive human neurophysiology at North Shore University Hospital of New York. He currently holds an Eccellenza professorial fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Pierre’s long-term objective is to understand how the activity of neurons in our brains underlies our sensations, thoughts and actions, and how these mechanisms go awry in neurological disorders such as epilepsy. His work bridges the clinical and the fundamental domains, and also spans the scales of organization of the human brain, from cortical areas down to single neurons.
