Dr. Amandine Béry received her Ethology Degree at University Paris XIII (France) in 2005. In 2009 she obtained her PhD at University of Barcelona (Spain), where she studied the phylogenetic position of an acoel (first member of bilaterians) by describing the morphology during the process of development and regeneration. This work provided for the first time a 3D reconstruction of the nervous system in an acoel (Bery et al 2010; Bery & Martinez 2011). Since 2009 she is the specialist of Acoela. In 2008, she was visiting researcher at Hartenstein lab, specialist of Drosophila brain development, University of California (Los Angeles). From 2009 to 2013 post-doctoral researcher at Institute Alfred Fessard, CNRS Gif-sur-Yvette (near Paris, France) with the aim to decipher the cis-regulation of neuronal progenitors of the murine corticogenesis by identifying enhancers from two approaches: ChIP-Seq analysis and genome-wide in silico search, as well as in vivo/ex vivo electroporation of GFP vectors in mouse embryonic cortex (Bery et al 2013; 2016). From 2013 to nowadays post-doctoral researcher at CEA Fontenay-aux-Rose (near Paris, France), whose project aims to understand the genotoxic stress (radio-induced) during the murine embryonic development, focusing on corticogenesis and behavior. Since 2014 she is consultant in ethology at CEA. Since 2016 she is involved in teaching activity for the module “Mental pathology” at the Faculty of Biology of Orsay (Paris, France). Reviewer of different International Scientific Journals and authors of scientific papers published in international Journals with Impact Factor.
Research interests of Dr. Amandine Béry are ethology, neurobiology, radioprotection, cellular and molecular biology, regulation of the genome, microscopy, electroporation of embryonic brain, genotoxic stress, neural stem/progenitors cells (NSPC), heterogeneity of NSPC, developing cerebral cortex and animal behavior.
