Véronique Sgambato is a neurobiologist (Researcher ID: G-9062-2017; ORCID: 0000-0002-8792-8586). She obtained her PhD in Neuroscience in 1998 from the University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris (Ph.D. director Prof. Jean-Michel Deniau; Laboratory of Neuroanatomy and Neurochemistry headed by Prof. Marie-Jo Besson). After two postdoctoral trainings in the USA in the laboratories of Prof. Steven E. Hyman (Molecular Plasticity Section, NINDS, NIH, Bethesda, MD) and of Prof. Paul Greengard (Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2000; Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, Rockefeller University, New-York City), she got an academic position in 2002 as a research scientist at INSERM, the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research. From 2003 to 2008, she worked in Grenoble (laboratories of Prof. Alim-Louis Benabid, INSERM U318 Preclinical Neuroscience and then of Dr. Marc Savasta, Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience) to investigate the impact of deep brain stimulation and levodopa treatment, the two major symptomatic treatments for Parkinson’s disease (PD), on the plasticity of basal ganglia neurons by combining behavioral, biochemical and immunohistochemical approaches on rodent models. In 2009, she moved to Lyon to join the Institute of cognitive Sciences Marc Jeannerod (Mixt Research Unit 5229 from the Scientific Research National Center (CNRS) and University of Lyon 1) and focused her research on the role of the serotonergic system in the pathophysiology of motor and non-motor symptoms in PD by combining behavioral, imaging and anatomical approaches on primates. Since January 1st, 2021, she leads a research team entitled “Neuroplasticity in Parkinson’s disease” with preclinical and clinical axes. Dr Sgambato was President of the French basal ganglia club from june 2018 to january 2023. She was a member of scientific committee of France Parkinson and of the Parkinson committee of Fondation de France for 6 years and is actually associate editor for Nature Journal of Parkinson's disease. Dr Sgambato’s work is supported by the CNRS, Université de Lyon, Fondation de France, Fondation Neurodis, France Parkinson and Agence Nationale de la Recherche.
