She then accepted a postdoctoral contract at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Bordeaux, France, where she studied the involvement of the subthalamic nucleus in drug addiction. Before her PhD, Dr Slone-Murphy worked at Sanofi, where she modeled pharmacokinetic data using clinical trial simulation software, and GlaxoSmithKline, where she conducted her MSc research and was employed as a bench scientist, investigating forebrain neurotransmission in a maternal isolation model of schizophrenia. Here, she also co-authored a paper on a novel liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry method, published in theJournal of Chromatography B (2008; 876(2):153–8).
