Gwenaëlle Douaud, PhD
Associate Professor, Oxford

Gwenaëlle is an Associate Professor and MRC Research Fellow at the Oxford University FMRIB Centre. Her work focuses on translational research from neuroimaging methods to basic and clinical human neuroscience, such as brain maturation and ageing, and with a particular emphasis on neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer's disease, movement disorders and motor neuron disease). Gwenaëlle has recently used data-driven approaches to study age-related structural changes in the brain. This revealed that a specific network of regions in the brain not only develops more slowly, but also degenerates faster than the rest of the brain, and is more vulnerable to diseases.
