Albie Mackintosh (Chatham 10)

Albert has completed his first year in Berlin as a Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions PhD fellow. So far, he has begun to unravel the protein sorting mechanism in the brain, to discover how neurons can fire so strongly, so often. This is an important step into understanding neuropathies such as epilepsy and autism. He recently gave a lecture to an annual conference in London, is expecting two academic papers to be released in early 2017 and will be heading to Torino in Italy to examine the same mechanism’s link to breast cancer biology.
