Dr Adahir Labrador Garrido

Dr Adahir Labrador Garrido, Postdoctoral Researcher, The University of Sydney.

Adahir is a Biologist with 10 years of experience working on neuroscience, mainly in Parkinson’s Disease, glia and alpha-Synuclein. The results obtained have been published in 10 peer reviewed papers and cited for a total of 210 times. During his research career he has made important contributions to the field including the link of the exposure to extracellular alpha-Synuclein with changes in the glial immune response, the capability of the use of alpha-Synuclein in combination with chaperones to elicit peripheral immune changes that could potentially affect disease progression and severity and the identification of biochemical properties that could explain the pathogenicity amyloid aggregates. Importantly, the data obtained from his PhD conducted to a registration of a Patent in 2013. Furthermore, part of his previous Postdoc work, transplanting primary microglial cultures into mice brain, has been recently published in a high impact factor journal.
