Angèle Parent, PhD

Dr. Angèle Parent is a Research Associate (Associate Professor) in the Department of Neurobiology at The University of Chicago. Parent is a neurophysiologist who has a longstanding interest in Alzheimer's disease with special emphasis on the mechanisms involved in memory storage. Parent graduated from The University of Montreal and pursued a postdoctoral training at The Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Parent has strong expertise in characterizing synaptic function using electrophysiology and imaging approaches. In the past ten years, her laboratory have successfully combined electrophysiological expertise with molecular and cell biology approaches to better understand complex mechanisms underlying the memory process in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
