Dr David Vauzour received his PhD from the University of Montpellier (France) in 2004 and serves as Senior Research Associate in the Department of Nutrition, Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia in Norwich in the UK.  His initial work focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal death in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. His recent interests concern how phytochemicals influence brain health through their interactions with specific cellular signaling pathways pivotal in protection against neurotoxins, in preventing neuroinflammation and in controlling memory, learning and neuro-cognitive performance.
