The Scientific Committee is fully committed to a great mission: To increase and share the best clinical knowledge and the cutting-edge information from translational research in all neurological fields. Main actions are i) to facilitate exchanges and synergies with the Scientific Panels ii) to support the Guideline Production Group (update and diffusion of expertise and best clinical practice), iii) to interact positively with other scientific societies with reciprocal exchanges and liaise with the European Affairs sub-Committee to increase the awareness of Neurology in Europe.
For the current term, our main objective is to foster joined actions at every level.
We need you, with your energy, creativity, expertise and diversity, and we thank you in advance for your commitments, for the best present and bright future of our community.
- What inspires you outside neurology?
People. I am fascinated by human beings. Who we are and what triggers our choices in life. I enjoy meeting new people and exploring their visions of the world.
- What are the lessons learned from your mistakes?
Do not do things alone. Discuss, share, challenge, delegate.
- If you would be a comic character, who would you be?

- If you had not entered your current profession, what would you have liked to do?
I would have loved to be a jazz singer, never too late?
- What is your idea of a perfect day?
Let’s start with a long breakfast with my husband while watching the sea, then running, swimming or playing tennis, lunch with my family, reading and listening to music during a lazy afternoon, and then finish the day with friends around a glass of champagne…French of course!
