Jeremy Spencer, PhD

Dr. Spencer received his PhD from King’s College London in 1997 and is currently Reader in Molecular Nutrition at the University of Reading. His initial work focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal death in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. His recent interests concern how flavonoids influence brain health through their interactions with specific cellular signaling pathways pivotal in protection against neurotoxins, in preventing neuroinflammation and in controlling memory, learning and neuro-cognitive performance.
