Felipe A. Court, PhD

Full Professor at Universidad Mayor de Chile

Location: Santiago Región Metropolitana Chile

Dr. Felipe A. Court did his undergraduate thesis in 1999 under the supervision of Dr. Jaime Alvarez, studying local protein synthesis in axons. In 2001 Dr. Court earned a PhD at Edinburgh University in the laboratories of Dr. Peter Brophy and Dr. Richard Ribchester working on parameters that defines conduction velocity in the nervous system. Under an EMBO fellowship he started to work in neuron-glia interaction in the laboratory of Dr. Laura Feltri at San Raffaele Institute (Milano). In his lab Dr. Court is working with models of neurodegenerative conditions, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson, as well as glia-derived inflammatory events in the CNS during aging. He also uses several in vitro techniques to culture sensory, hippocampal and dopaminergic neurons, as well as glial cells in the central and peripheral nervous system, and he has developed novel co-culture methods. He uses techniques for gene editing, life cell imaging, advanced microscopy and ultrastructural analysis.
