Dr. Richetin Kevin, Ph.D. – Group Leader

After a PhD in Neuroscience on Alzheimer’s disease (Pr. Claire Rampon), 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. In 2020, I established my own research lab on age-related dementia (Center of Psychiatric Neurosciences of the CHUV of Lausanne – Switzerland).

After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Neuroscience at Lehigh University, I came to the University of Lausanne to pursue a master in Medical Biology with a specialization in Neuroscience. In June 2020, I joined the Tonilab under the supervision of Dr. Kevin Richetin and Prof. Nicolas Toni and began my master project studying the potential for brain-derived extracellular vesicles to be used as early diagnostic tools for various tauopathies and dementias. I then continued working on this project in June 2021 as a PhD student.
