Luc Buée is a French scientist (CNRS Research Director). Head of the Inserm laboratory « Alzheimer & Tauopathies » at the Jean-Pierre Aubert Research Centre, University of Lille, France. He has worked on Alzheimer disease and related disorders for more than twenty five years. He started his work on the role of proteoglycans in Alzheimer's disease with a PhD training at Mount Sinai Medical Center, NYC. He was then involved in the initial characterization of tau aggregates among neurodegenerative disorders. He has then developed experimental models to better understand tau aggregation and propagation. His group is currently working on the atypical Tau functions, the pathophysiological consequences of neurofibrillary degeneration in Alzheimer disease and Tauopathies.
