Post Doctoral Fellow

Yann Le Guen

Dr. Le Guen graduated with Distinction in 2015 from both Telecom Paris and the Imperial College London, respectively with an MSc in Computer Science and an MSc in Biomedical Bioenginerring (Neurotechnology track). Then, he pursued a PhD thesis in imaging genetics at Neurospin-CEA analyzing MR images and genomics data to decipher the genetic causes underlying the well-characterized brain asymmetries which support the human language processing. He received his PhD in 2018 at the University Paris-Saclay and joined the Greicius lab where he is contributing to improve our understanding of the genetics causes of neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. While at Stanford University, he was awarded a highly selective European fellowship (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, 2019 call), which he officially activated in 2021. Under this fellowship, he will work two additional years at Stanford University followed by one year at the Brain and Spine Institute in Paris under Prof. Bruno Dubois supervision (ICM, Sorbonne University). The funded project is entitled “A multimodal approach to accelerate drug discovery and development in Alzheimer’s disease”, details at cordis.europa.eu/project/id/890650.
