Diana F Silvia is currently pursuing her PhD at Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology at the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Since 2009 she has been interested on understanding the pathophysiologic mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease from a mitochondrial point of view. She has been able to describe that mitochondrial dysfunction starts a sequence of events leading to cell demise in AD models, in a team work between the University of Coimbra and University ok Kansas Medical Center, USA. These observations can be accessed on more than 10 papers published in peer reviwed journals.
