Alino Jose Martinez Marcos

Graduate (1993) by the University of Valencia. Doctoral Thesis on the neuroanatomy of the visual and limbic systems.
Postdoctoral training in the United States (1997-2000) at the Downstate Medical Center of the State University of New York. Assistant (2000) and Associate Professor (2003) of Human Anatomy and Embryology at the Albacete Medical School, University of Castilla-La Mancha. Since 2010, he moved with his group (Neuroplasticity and Neurodegeneration) to the new Ciudad Real Medical School. His current research focuses on neuroanatomical changes underlying Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases in human brain and transgenic mouse models. Specifically, the characterization of the vulnerability of different neuronal and glial subpopulations in areas of the limbic system by proteinopathies such as tau, beta-amyloid and alpha-synuclein. Its approach includes the characterization of where and when these proteinopathies begin within the nervous system, what effects they produce on neurons and which are more vulnerable in order to help characterize the etiology of these diseases, their progression and their early diagnosis.
