Philippe Vernier is neurologist, former Medical Resident at Grenoble University Hospital and head of research at CNRS in the “Development, evolution, plasticity of the nervous system” laboratory at Gif-sur-Yvette. Researches in his group concern fundamental aspects of brain development and evolution and aim at a better understanding of how brains of different species develop during embryogenesis, how they are structured and organized as functional systems. Philippe Vernier was in different positions of responsibility at the CNRS or other institutions (board of directors of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, scientific council of PHASE department, INRA and other foundations). He is currently president of the Neuropôle de Recherche Francilien (NeRF).
