Cyril Dejean is an associate researcher in the field of Neuroscience at University of Bordeaux and the art director and co-founder of SciLight.
As a scientist, Cyril regularly promotes his work for colleagues around the world, whether it is in the form of peer-reviewed papers, seminars or round tables. Cyril believes that alongside basic bench work, communication is an elemental feature of any research activty. In line with this belief Cyril learned to master high-tech graphic edition and co-founded SciLight a scientific animation company which mission is to combine absolute scientific precision with advanced graphics and aesthetics.
Growing up in a family of sculptors and fashion designers, taking Science as a Major somehow turned Cyril into a black sheep.
Secretly prefers Burgundy wines to the blends of his hometown Bordeaux.
