Hardy J. Rideout, PhD

Collaborating Scientist at Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens

Location: Athens Greece

Hardy J. Rideout, PhD, received his undergraduate degree from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, and completed his PhD in anatomy & neurobiology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Leonidas Stefanis at Columbia University in New York, studying the role of dysfunction of protein degradation systems on neuronal death and inclusion body formation in cellular models of Parkinson’s disease. He then joined the lab of Dr. William Dauer at Columbia as an associate research scientist where he began his study of the pathogenic mechanisms of LRRK2. In 2009, he joined the Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Group at the Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens in Greece, where he continues his work focusing on the links between altered LRRK2 localization and signaling, and the activation of neuronal death pathways.
