Richetin Kevin

After a PhD in Neuroscience on Alzheimer’s disease, I joined in 2015 the group of Pr. Déglon to develop different viral tools for neurodegenerative diseases. In 2017, I join the group of Pr. Toni for a second postdoctoral fellowship to investigate the role of astrocytes in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Since 2020, I have established the Unit for Research on the Neurobiology of Aging in the Center for Psychiatric Neuroscience, Lausanne University Hospital.

Valentin Zufferey

PhD student

I completed my master's degree in the RichetiLab 2019 on implementing high-throughput live microscopy. After several Lab experiences, I joined the Richetin lab in 2022 for a PhD to investigate the effect of protein aggregation on the mitochondrial system and synaptic integration.

Aatmika Barve

PhD student

I'm a PhD student interested in how the brain can release biomarkers into biofluids. More specifically, my projects focus on the analysis of saliva during the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
