Steeve Bourane completed his PhD in December 2007 in the laboratory of Pr. Jean Valmier and Dr. Patrick Carroll (Institute for Neurosciences of Montpellier, France) followed by two years of temporary lecturer and research assistant (ATER) at the University of Montpellier II. The main focus of his research was to identify and characterize genes expressed in subtypes of sensory neurons of the dorsal root ganglia (DRG). From 2010 to 2016, Steeve Bourane performed a postdoctoral training with the Pr. Martyn Goulding at the Salk Institute in La Jolla (California, USA). His research focused on the identification and characterization of dorsal horn interneurons subtypes that receive, integrate and transmit sensory information such as pain, touch and itch coming from DRG neurons. In 2019, Steeve Bourane has been recruited as a tenured Research Fellow (Chargé de Recherche) at INSERM. He is also the laureate for the Atip-Avenir program that will allowed him to create and lead a research team working on diabetic neuropathy.

Main domains of expertise:

Sensory neurons, Dorsal spinal cord interneurons, Schwann cells, Diabetic neuropathy
