Benoit Desbiolles

Postdoctoral Associate
  • Nano-Cybernetic Biotrek

Benoît Desbiolles is a Swiss National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow at the Nano- Cybernetic Biotrek research group working on advanced nanotechnologies to assess electrophysiological characteristics of 3D neural networks at the transmembrane voltage level. He obtained his Bachelor in microengineering from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, and got specialized in the development of micro-nanosystems for biomedical applications during his Master studies shared between EPFL and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In May 2020, Benoît completed his PhD at EPFL during which he developed a novel type of nanopatterned volcano-shaped microelectrode arrays to perform intracellular electrophysiology over extended periods of time.
