Marc Schneeberger Pané received his B.S. in Pharmacy from Barcelona University, Catalonia in 2010. Next, he received his M.S. in Biomedicine from Barcelona University, Catalonia in 2011. He then studied how the powerhouse of the cell (mitochondria) is responsible for controlling whole body energy balance and metabolism in the canonical site for energy balance control (hypothalamus) with Marc Claret, PhD and earned his Ph.D. in Biomedicine at the Barcelona University, Catalonia in 2015. He then became a KAVLI postdoctoral fellow and a Pathway to Independence fellow in Prof. Jeffrey M.Friedman laboratory at The Rockefeller University. There he conducted whole mount activity maps in energy states to decipher the role of two novel subsets of neurons in the Dorsal Raphe Nucleus of the brainstem in energy balance control. He joined the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at Yale University School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor in July 2022.

The Schneeberger Pané laboratory employs state-of-the-art technologies in neuroscience combining unbiased whole mount imaging of circuits, activity and vasculature; molecular profiling single-cell gene expression technologies, neuoromodulation (optogenetics, and chemogenetics) to understand the fundamental principles in the brain governing homeostasis. The overarching goal of the laboratory is to advance in the understanding of how neuronal, immune and vascular networks coordinately control homeostasis, with a focus on energy homeostasis.
