Dr. Kenneth Moya (Research Director at the CNRS / Collège de France, Paris)

Speaker’s profile
Dr. Ken Moya was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He did his undergraduate degree in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University working on depression after stroke and cognitive function in patients. He then did his PhD at MIT where his work concerned the molecular changes in nerve fibers as they grow to their brain targets and form connections. He was then invited to France by the Atomic Energy Commission to work on protein movement in nerve fibers. He was recruited by the CNRS in 1991 and worked on Alzheimer’s Disease and prion diseases. Since moving to the Ecole Normale Superièure and subsequently to the Collège de France, his research concerns neuroprotection in diseases such as glaucoma, Parkinson and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Ken will speak about, how we see, diseases that cause the loss of vision and recent developments for restoring vision.
