Dr. Anne Bertolotti’s research focuses on understanding and preventing the deposition of misfolded proteins in cells, a hallmark of numerous neurological diseases. Bertolotti has been a group leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK since 2006. Prior to joining the LMB, she was an Associate Professor at Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris from 2001-2006. Bertolotti did her PhD training at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) near Strasbourg, France and she was a post-doctoral fellow at the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine at NYU School of Medicine in New York.
Bertolotti was elected an EMBO Young Investigator in 2005 and an EMBO member in 2013. In 2014, she was awarded the Hooke Medal of the British Society for Cell Biology for her contributions to our understanding of abnormal protein folding. Bertolotti was elected a Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences in 2017. Learn more about Bertolotti’s research here.
