Dr. Prevot’s postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Sergio R. Ojeda at the Oregon National Primate Research Center/Oregon Health & Science University, USA, continued the study of neuronal and glial plasticity in the GnRH system, crucial for the onset of puberty and adult fertility, that he initiated for his doctorate under J.-C. Beauvillain at the University of Lille, France. These studies have led and continue to lead to many seminal contributions and groundbreaking concepts in their understanding of the central control of mammalian reproduction, including the role that plays a specific brain glial cell type named tanycytes in this process. Following his postdoctoral training, Dr. Prevot returned to France to take up a tenured Associate Researcher position at the Inserm in 2002, establishing an independent research group at Lille. In 2006, he became head of the “Development and Plasticity of the Postnatal Brain” Inserm laboratory at Lille, which currently comprises 43 researchers, clinicians, postdoctoral fellows, Ph.D. students and technicians. Dr. Prevot was officially promoted to the rank of Senior Research Director in January 2016. His current research focuses on Systems Neuroscience and Neuroendocrinology, in particular the brain circuits that control reproduction and metabolism and the neural pathways through which they respond to peripheral information. He is also exploring how the alteration of the neural networks manning these key physiological functions could lead to mental comorbidities. Dr. Prevot participates in and has served on the Executive Committees of several learned societies, and currently holds the position of President of the International Federation of Neuroendocrinology, Past President of the French Society for Neuroendocrinology as well as Past Treasurer of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS).
