Speaker Profile

Pierre-Olivier Fernagut, PhD


I Graduated in 2003 from the university of Bordeaux (France) where I did my PhD on the development of mouse models of MSA. After a post-doctoral fellowship in the department of Neurology at UCLA where I worked on interactions between alpha-synuclein and pesticides, I was appointed in 2007 as a researcher at the French national center for scientific research. My research interests are to identify disease mechanisms and operate the preclinical validation of disease-modifying strategies in MSA. I serve as the coordinator of the scientific advisory board at ARAMISE (French MSA association)
