Remarks / more information:

undefinedThe Executive Board of Radboud university medical center has awarded the Valkhof Chair 2015 to Professor Carmen Sandi.

Professor Carmen Sandi is Director of the Brain Mind Institute, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. After completing her PhD at the Cajal Institute, Madrid, she continued her scientific career at the University of Bordeaux, INSERM, France, and the Open University, UK.

She was appointed Professor in Madrid where she directed the Laboratory for Stress and Memory and after a sabbatical stay at the University of Bern, she joined the EPFL in Lausanne, in 2003.

 

About her work
Her work has been pioneering in identifying the neurobiological mechanisms whereby stress affects memory and psychopathology. Her research group is currently combining approaches in rodents and humans to understand how stress affects the social brain and the emergence of violence, including the factors that define individual differences in resilience and vulnerability to stress.

The Department of Cognitive Neuroscience will officially host Professor Carmen Sandi during her visit of the Radboudumc.

At the symposium ‘The stressed social brain’ Professor Sandi will deliver this year’s Valkhof Lecture, entitled: The stressed social brain: from rodents to humans
