Biography
With over 14 years of experience in the field of Alzheimer’s Disease and related neurodegenerative disorders my research interest focus around understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer´s disease (AD) pathological events. My experience centres in pre-clinical research: understanding basic mechanisms of disease to early drug discovery. I have generated one of the most informative mouse models of Alzheimer´s disease and neurodegeneration which associates pathological features with cognitive and behavioural deficits and I have tracked experience in the use of primary neuronal cultures to dissect the molecular mechanisms leading to neurotoxicity and associated pathology in the core of the amyloid pathway. Now I´m using both these expertise to start a drug discovery programme based on the identification of novel target for therapeutic interventions.
