Andres Jaramillo Flautero (PhD student)
Andres did his first bachelor in Biology and then a second one in Chemistry at Los Andes University (Bogotá, Colombia). Afterwards he joined Dr. Ofer Yizhar’s lab for his master in neuroscience at the Weizmann Institute of Science. Here, he explored the molecular fingerprints of epilepsy. Since very early on in his career, he has been interested in catecholaminergic modulation of complex cognitive behaviors such as flexibility and creativity. He is now starting his PhD at LIN, where he wants to evaluate different early biomarkers for Parkinson´s disease diagnostics using fMRI and proteomic approaches to pave the way for novel therapeutic strategies. To help us to stay on track, Andres is co-supervised with Dr. Matthew Betts from the DZNE.
