The NeoBrainLab is devoted to the understanding of the causes and consequences of brain and eyes damages in sick babies. The main goals of the lab are to develop innovative strategies to prevent or repair these brain and eyes damages, and thus to improve the future of these babies. The laboratory uses clinical, basic and translational research to understand mechanisms underlying these brain and eyes damages, and to develop innovative treatments that could lead to decrease brain and eyes damages in sick babies. We welcome all persons, who are motivated and interested to work in this field.
