About me

  • Dr Francois Lallemend is a Professor of Neurobiology of Sensory Systems at the Department of Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet since 1 December 2023. He received his PhD at the GIGA Neuroscience, in Liege (Belgium), followed by postdoctoral research at the Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics Department at Karolinska Institutet, working on neural crest and cell type diversification. He established his research group in 2011, and was recruited in 2013 at the Neuroscience Department, where he heads the lab of neuronal specification and connectivity.


  • The Lallemend lab focuses on understanding the developmental principles and functional diversity of sensory neuron types and how those influence our behavior. Research in his lab leverage advanced single cell transcriptomics and circuit-interrogation technology to identify the structurally- and molecularly-defined neuronal elements for auditory perception, balance and proprioception, in physiological and pathological conditions. His lab also explores the mechanisms by which experience-driven neuronal activity shapes the developing mammalian sensory systems and is interested at understanding whether such neuronal plasticity is retained in adult and if its modulation can lead to a gain of sensory function or to its deterioration during disorders or with aging.
