Sana AL Awabdh is a contract lecturer in University of Paris in Saint Germain des Saints Pères Campus where she provides teaching in biochemistry and molecular biology. Sana joined the laboratory in september 2019 where she is investigating the impact of environmental pollutants on differentiation and  development of human neurons. To this aim, she combines transcriptomics, flow cytometry and imaging experiments in neuronal human cells in culture.

After graduating from Sorbonne University (University Pierre et Marie Curie Campus) with a Master degree in “Molecular and cellular biology” specialty “Biochemistry”, Sana specialized in neurobiology, she  did a PhD thesis in Michel Hamon Lab in Paris in Pitié Salpêtrière hospital (UPMC), a first postdoctoral training in United Kingdom in Josef Kittler Lab  in University College London (UCL) and came back to Paris for a second postdoctoral position in Fer à Moulin Institute (IFM) in Jean Christophe Poncer and Sabine Lévi Lab. She is interested in understanding molecular and cellular mechanims regulating the trafficking of receptors and transporters crucial for brain functions in vitro (cell cultures) and ex-vivo (brain slices).  To this aim, she used proteomics, molecular biology tools, biochemical assays and fixed/live imaging experiments using various microscopy techniques.
