Trained in the Inserm school, Nicolas Villain very early on embraced a dual medical and scientific course. This dual career allowed him to work on neuroimaging of Alzheimer’s disease with Prof. Francis Eustache and Dr Gaël Chételat, at Caen while training in clinical neurology in Paris. He now holds a position of Senior Registrar in the clinical unit of Prof. Bruno Dubois, Institute for Memory and Alzheimer’s Disease (IM2A), at Pitié-Salpêtrière, where he conducts his research projects while taking care of patients on a daily basis.His current research projects, supported by the Foundation for Research on Alzheimer’s, consists in analyzing brain imaging data from the INSIGHT cohort to try to understand the mechanisms of vulnerability of neural networks in Alzheimer’s disease, and to try to thus determine the causes of the disease.
