Research

Sylvie Breton is a PhD in Biophysics who specializes in the cell biology of membrane transport, using a multidisciplinary approach including high-resolution laser scanning confocal microscopy, 3D reconstructions of single cells, and electrophysiological techniques. She studies luminal acidification, and water and solute transport in the male reproductive tract. She became Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School in 2012, and she has been at MGH since 1994.
