M.D. University of Liège, Belgium
Audrey Maudoux qualified as a medical doctor in 2008 from the University of Liège, Belgium. During her medical studies, her interest turned to brain functions, cerebral functional imagery as well as otolaryngology. In order to combine her clinical and research interests, she joined the Cyclotron Research Centre (CRC) of the University of Liège to pursue her PhD (FNRS research fellow) while doing her residency in Otolaryngology at the University hospital of Liège. In 2012, she became a doctor in medical science. She was board certified in Otolaryngology in 2013.
In 2014, Audrey Maudoux received a Franqui Foundation grant (BAEF fellow) allowing her to pursue a post-doctoral fellowship at the laboratory of Pr. Rauschecker at Georgetown University.
Thanks to neuroimaging techniques such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and neuromodulation methods such as transcranial direct current sitmulation (tDCS), she studies the mechanisms that underlie the perception of tinnitus.
Audrey Maudoux has been awarded several prizes including the prize of the Belgian Royal Academy of Medicine for future clinician-researchers (in 2008), the prize Albert Kesteloot (FNRS, in 2008) and the Tinnitus Prize (FNRS, in 2011).
