Biographical details

Dr Cristian Leyton completed his undergraduate degree of Medical Doctor at the University of Santiago of Chile in 2000 and worked as a clinical neurologist between 2005 and 2008. In 2009 he moved to Australia, completing his PhD at UNSW in 2012. In 2013, he was appointed as a research officer at Neuroscience Research Australia to conduct research on the logopenic variant of primary progressive aphasia.
