Dr. Isabelle Aubert

Senior Scientist, Sunnybrook Research Institute
Associate Professor, University of Toronto

Isabelle AubertDr. Isabelle Aubert obtained her PhD from the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University. Her graduate work was done at the Douglas Research Institute, in the laboratory of Dr. Rémi Quirion, co-supervised by Dr. Serge Gauthier. As a Medical Research Council (MRC) fellow, Dr. Aubert conducted her post-doctoral training with Dr. Fred Gage at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies. In 1998, Dr. Aubert returned to Canada to establish her laboratory at Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI). She is currently Senior Scientist at SRI and Associate Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology at the University of Toronto. Her research is based on therapeutic development to stop degeneration and promote regeneration in the brain under pathological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. Her recent work uses MRI-guided focused ultrasound to deliver molecules, genes and cells from the blood to targeted areas of the brain without the need for invasive surgeries. Her goal is to develop treatments that will better mental health and restore and preserve critical cognitive functions such as learning and memory in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
