Dr. Maxime Rousseaux joined the University of Ottawa and the uOBMRI in April. He focused on elucidating mechanisms of neurodegeneration in models of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and stroke during his doctoral training. He returns to Ottawa after a successful stint with Dr. Huda Zogbhi’s lab at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute/BCM, where he established a PD-centered research program that employed genetic screening methods to query the genome for modifiers of toxic protein levels and toxicity. Other accomplishments include receiving a CIHR fellowship, as well as the prestigious Stanley Fahn Junior Faculty Award from the Parkinson’s Foundation.
