Dr. Neunlist visited us on April 2nd, 2019. He earned his PhD in electrophysiology in 1994 at University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, France. In his postdoctoral position in the laboratory headed by Michael Scheman in Hannover, Germany, he worked in the field of neurogastroenterology. Since 2007, he has directed a laboratory devoted to the study of enteric nervous system and enteric neuropathies. During his visit, he shared the importance of the enteric nervous system in the gut and some exciting new techniques using optical coherence tomography to image the ENS in the intestine. Finally, he shared some interesting new findings implicating the gut in Parkinson’s disease.
