Diane Lazard

ENT Surgeon - Paris

Dr. Lazard is an ENT surgeon in Paris, France. Her research interests are cerebral plasticity induced by post-lingual deafness and by auditory rehabilitation with a cochlear implant, and tinnitus in presbycusis patients (Institut des Neurosciences de Montpellier, Pr Jean-Luc Puel, and Institut du Cerveau et de la Moëlle, Pr Laurent Cohen). She has a PhD in Neurosciences (Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, Dr Anne-Lise Giraud) and undertook a post-doc at The Bionics Institute, Melbourne, Australia where she worked with Prof.s Peter Blamey and Hugh Mc Dermott. She is specialized in fMRI and PET.
