Fanny Mochel, MD, PhD,

Is a professor of genetics at Sorbonne University. She received her MD in Genetics in 2005 at the University Paris Descartes, her PhD in Neuroscience in 2010 at Sorbonne University and is board certified in inborn errors of metabolism.

Prof. Mochel leads the French reference center on Neurometabolic diseases in adults and co-leads a research team (“Immunity, Metabolism and Neurodegeneration”) at the Paris Brain Institute of La Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital in Paris.

She is chair of the adult section of the Society for the Study of Inborn Errors of Metabolism (SSIEM) and co-chair of the French society for inborn of errors of metabolism in adults. Her research is focused on the characterization and treatment of brain energy deficiencies in neurometabolic and neurodegenerative diseases. Her major areas of expertise are the identification of neurometabolic biomarkers in vitro (metabolomics) and in vivo (metabolic imaging) as well as therapeutic approaches targeting the Krebs cycle.
