Research

Sylvie Breton is a PhD in Biophysics who specializes in the cell biology of membrane transport. She studies luminal acidification and intercellular communication networks in the kidney and epididymis. She became Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School in 2012, and she has been at MGH since 1994.
