Jim Monistrol, Ph.D.
I am originally from France, and completed my B.Sc. in Chemistry followed by my Master's degree in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier (ENSCM) in Montpellier, France. I earned my Ph.D. at Birkbeck College, Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology (ISMB) in London. In the Shahmoradian lab, I use cryo-electron microscopy and tomography to study the ultrastructure of macromolecular complexes including alpha-synuclein and tau amyloid, in relation to brain cells and tissues.
