Biographical details

In 2013, Dr Cristian Leyton completed his PhD at the University of New South Wales, Australia. In 2014, he was funded by the University of Sydney postdoctoral fellowship and appointed at the Faculty of Health Sciences. In 2016, he was awarded a Dementia Research Development Fellowship, a scheme co-funded by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council and Australia Research Council. As a part of the international component, he conducted postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA, between 2016 and 2017.

His research focuses on primary progressive aphasia, a fast-growing field that concerns with progressive language disturbances caused by neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer's disease. His methods integrate clinical and neuropsychological findings with neuroimaging, biomarkers and pathological information. By relating language deficits with the distribution of brain atrophy and specific pathologies, his goal is to understand mechanisms of selective neural vulnerability, emergency of cognitive deficits and disease progression.
