Dr Sian Genoud

Dr Sian Genoud, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Macquarie University.

Sian was awarded her BSc (Hons I) in 2015 and PhD in 2020 at The Brain and Mind Centre, The University of Sydney. Her project investigated the role of biometals in neurodegenerative pathways in the Parkinson's disease brain and ALS spinal cord. She then worked as a clinical Research Officer at the Cancer Institute NSW before joining the Dementia Research Centre at Macquarie University as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with Prof Thomas Fath in February 2021. Sian's current research focuses on cellular and molecular processes underlying neuropathology and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease.
