Description of the thesis topic
Revision of the anatomy of the autonomic nervous system, based on genetics, in continuation of the team's work published in :
Espinosa-Medina, I. et al. The sacral autonomic outflow is sympathetic. Science 354, 893–897 (2016).

The Institute of Biology of École normale supérieure (IBENS) is a fundamental research centre in Life sciences. Our research aims at deciphering the fundamental mechanisms at the core of biological processes.
IBENS (ENS, CNRS and Inserm joint unit) hosts over 300 people in 30 autonomous teams. The research environment is highly collaborative and interdisciplinary, and combines experimental and theoretical approaches. Our activities cover fields as various as functional genomics, neurobiology, developmental biology, ecology and evolution biology.
Several technological platforms, notably in imaging, genomics, computational biology and proteomics, provide a robust support to the activities of the different teams. Our research also benefits from the high potential of interactions with other scientific departments in ENS (physics, chemistry, mathematics, informatics, etc.). ENS is deeply involved in the formation of students and young researchers at all levels.
The host team Development and evolution of neural circuits ((https://www.ibens.ens.fr/spip.php?rubrique12) is headed by Jean-François Brunet. Our research concerns the anatomy, development, physiology and evolution of the autonomic nervous system.
