"A person's mental activities are entirely due to the behaviour of nerve cells, glial cells, and the atoms, ions, and molecules that make them up and influence them." This is what the Nobel laureate Francis Crick asserted in his book, "The Astonishing Hypothesis". In accordance with it, I believe that the amazing complexity of our mind, are hidden in the yet not well-understood molecular mechanisms that rule our cellular functions. Unraveling such mechanisms is crucial not only for the the better understanding of life, but also for the great impact that this implies for humanity, since this knowledge will increase our chances to find cures for neurodegenerative diseases, such us Alzheimer’s or Parkinson disease.
I am a Peruvian scientist trained in functional genomics, molecular biology, and biochemistry at Kyushu University Japan. I am member of Dr. Dubal's laboratory trying to better understand the specialised roles of mitochondria in the brain with the target of boosting its function during aging and disease opening a new approach to treat neurodegenerative disorders.
