Back to Bay area & upcoming AAIC

I haven’t updated this for a while, probably because a lot has happened in the last few months:

  • After months of administrative struggle to get my visa, I moved back to the bay area! I joined Gil Rabinovici’s lab at the Memory and Aging Center at UCSF. I am very enthusiatic to be part of one of the most exciting world-wide research centers in the  field of aging and neurodegenrative diseases. Lots of unique learning experiences and collaborations ahead of me.
  • I was invited to give the opening plenary talk at the next Alzheimer’s Imaging Consortium (AIC), the imaging-centric preconference of the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in Toronto, on July 23. This new type of presentation was initiated last year: a “junior” scientist has 30 min to present an overview of the research published since the last AAIC. Last year, Michel Grothe did a great job for the first edition of this special overview talk, and it seems that AIC organizers decided to make this a new “tradition”. Looking forward to Toronto!

About Renaud La Joie

PhD in neuroscience/neuropsychology. I am interested in age-related neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease & related disorders. My research involves multimodal neuroimaging and neuropsychological tools, as complementary approaches are required to better characterize - and hopefully understand - these disorders. From a more fundamental perspective, studying the diseased brain will also contribute to further our knowledge on the neural basis of cognitive functions in the normal brain.
