Beast to tackle: What is this thing we call Alzheimer’s disease?
Bio: Since studying the subject at the University of Leeds, Aurelien thinks that Biochemistry is the answer to all of life’s problems. That led him to be involved, first as a student and then as a research assistant, in research on metal ion homeostasis in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. He’s now a PhD student at Cardiff University, interested in the role of the immune cells of the brain or microglia in Alzheimer’s disease.
He is also known in brain domain quarters as ‘Mr Mumbles’. He’s been described as so chilled out, he’s almost horizontal. Aurelien has many french days, which is when the Inside Out style emotions in his head grapple with the English language and seldom come up with comprehensible sentences. He enjoys nothing more than watching movies and TV shows, and is often in a bad mood for days when Man Utd lose.
