Pablo Izquierdo

Current Board of Directors · Science Policy Department

I graduated in Biochemistry from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2015, after completing summer stays abroad at Universität Zürich and Karolinska Institutet. I then moved to University College London to study Neuroscience, first as an MSc (funded by Fundaciò La Caixa) and currently as a PhD under the supervision of Prof. David Attwell (funded by Wellcome Trust). My research focuses on how the immune cells of the brain are involved in Alzheimer’s disease, and in particular on the role of the potassium channel Kcnk13. I am also passionate about science communication, public engagement and science policy.
