Biography

Dr. Marambaud is an associate investigator at the Litwin-Zucker Research Center at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, Northwell Health, where he directs the Laboratory of Memory Disorders. For the past 18 years, the major goal of Dr. Marambaud’s research has been to elucidate the molecular basis of neuronal degeneration in Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Marambaud’s research accomplishments include the discovery that the presenilin/gamma-secretase complex (a drug target for Alzheimer’s disease) is involved in the proteolysis and function of the adhesion proteins, E- and N-cadherins; the discovery of the key role played by the Ser/Thr protein kinase AMPK in tau phosphorylation and in the anti-amyloidogenic properties of the natural polyphenol resveratrol; and the discovery of the channel protein CALHM1.
