Dr. Jean-Pierre Roussarie, Senior Research Associate at the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research at The Rockefeller University

Initially trained at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, Dr. Roussarie has now been an investigator for the Fisher Center for a few years. He is trying to understand why only certain types of neurons in specific parts of the brains are affected by the disease while other types of neurons in other brain regions remain intact. He expects to find “vulnerability factors” that could be inhibited by drugs to prevent the most fragile neurons of the brain to die.
