Stéphane Gasman

Stéphane Gasman Stéphane Gasman is INSERM researcher working at the Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences Institute (INCI) in Strasbourg in which is co-leading the team « membrane trafficking in the nervous system » with Dr. Nicolas Vitale. He has got a double training in biology and chemistry from the University of Strasbourg and obtained in 1998 a Ph.D in molecular and cellular neurobiology by investigating the mechanisms regulating neuroendocrine secretion. In 1999, he joins the laboratory of Dr. Marino Zerial at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) from Heidelberg in Germany. During this post-doctoral period, he expands his investigation in the fields of intracellular membrane trafficking and Rho GTPases. Overall, his researches led to the identification of the Rho GTPases controlling the hormonal release and to the mechanisms connecting exocytosis with endocytosis of secretory granules in neuroendocrine cells. Today, Stéphane Gasman is exploiting his skills to address a new biomedical project aiming to understand how and why secretion become abberant in neuroendocrine tumors.

As part of his fellowship, Stéphane Gasman is working on Molecular mechanisms of hyper-secretion in neuroendocrine tumors with his collaborator Laurent Brunaud.
