Postdoctoral FellowEmail Romane
Romane Idoux completed her PhD in 2022, carried out under the supervision of Pr. Bruno Allard at the NeuroMyoGene Institute in Lyon (France). The aim of Romane’s thesis was to perform a comprehensive characterization of up-to-now unexplored excitation-contraction coupling (ECC) in isolated skeletal muscle fibers from adult zebrafish using electrophysiological techniques combined with intracellular Ca2+ measurement. These properties were then investigated in a pathological condition from a zebrafish model of Bethlem myopathy.
During Romane’s PhD, she also taught practical courses in animal physiology to undergraduate students at the Claud Bernard Lyon 1 University.
Romane is interested in fundamental research on rare neuromuscular disorders, and has joined the Lochmüller Lab to start a new research project.
