Talented team

People at the e-Lab

Neurologists, neuroscientists, physicists and engineers work together at the e-Lab and exchange knowledge to crack the mysteries of epilepsy

Active members

Maxime Baud – e-Lab group leader

Maxime obtained his MD in Lausanne and his PhD in sleep neuroscience in 2011 from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). He completed a residency training in neurology at University of California San Francisco (UCSF), followed by a postdoctoral fellowship focusing on signal analysis of human intracranial EEG. In addition to his role as the e-Lab group leader, Maxime is an attending epileptologist at the University Hospital of Bern, and staff neurologist at the Wyss Center for neuroengineering. Maxime lives in Bern and loves to ski and hike in the Alps.

Maxime Baud - Principal Investigator

Kristina Slabeva – PhD Student

Kristina studied biomedical science in Bern and obtained her master at the e-Lab. She is currently studying the epileptic hippocampus using optogenetics. Kristina loves books.

Grégory Lepeu – MD-PhD Student

Grégory studied medicine at the University of Geneva and is currently studying the interplay between the endocrine system and epilepsy in animal models. Grégory loves to read a book with a good drink.

Marc Grau - Post-doctoral Fellow

Marc Grau – Post-doctoral Fellow

Marc studied physics at the University of Barcelona, obtained his PhD from the COSMOS program (Complex Oscillating Systems: Modeling and Analysis) and applies his modeling and statistical skills to better understand the temporal structure of epilepsy. Marc loves to play football, squash and board games.

Joël Gyger – Lab Technician

Joël is an experienced lab technician who worked at a number of Swiss Universities in microbiology and neuroscience. He is now responsible for neurosurgical protocols and the development of the electrophysiology set-up at the e-Lab. Joël is passionate about new technologies, he loves scuba-diving and cooking for friends and family.

Collaborations with the e-Lab

Antoine Adamantidis, PhD

Bern University Hospital

Antoine Adamantidis is a Professor of Neuroscience at the Bern University Hospital and the director of the Center for Experimental Neurology (ZEN), as well as the leader of the Tidis lab. The e-Lab is hosted at the ZEN and benefits from Antoine’s expertise in optogenetics.

Maxime Baud - Principal Investigator

Vikram Rao, MD, PhD

University of California San Francisco

Vikram Rao is an assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology at UCSF. We collaborate on the analysis of chronic EEG recordings in epilepsy patients with the goal of achieving personalized seizure forecasts. 

Kaspar Schindler, MD, PhD

Bern Hospital University

Kaspar Schindler is a Professor of Neurology and the director of the Center for Sleep Wake and Epilepsy (SWEZ) at the Bern University Hospital. The e-Lab benefits from Kaspar’s expertise in epileptology and EEG time-series analysis using a broad-range of statistical techniques.
