Agnes Nadjar
Ph.D. Scientific Director & co-founder.

Agnes Nadjar is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Physiology at the University of Bordeaux Segalen (Bordeaux, France) and one of the founders of SciLight. She completed her PhD work in neuroinflammation and is now a specialist of microglial cells physiology. She uses state-of-the-art microscopy techniques to study neurons - microglia interactions and she regularly publishes her work in international journals.
Her research focuses on cell biology. She is most particularly interested in the influence of diet on the signaling pathways of neuroinflammation.
Her need to illustrate dynamic biological processes led her to get trained at Harvard University (Boston, US) in scientific 3D animation while working as a visiting scholar at Tufts University. Agnes developed a passion for visualization and communication of science, and co-founded SciLight once back in Bordeaux. Thanks to her background in both basic research and animation, Agnes has the ambition to combine visually compelling graphic editing with absolute accuracy and precision of scientific data representation.
