Dr Xavier Ramon Gallart-Palau


Nanyang Technological University

Dr Xavier Ramon Gallart-Palau graduated with a Master’s in Neuroscience from the University of Barcelona, Spain, in 2012. He received his PhD in 2016 as part of an international PhD program from the University of Lleida, Spain, the DUKE-NUS Medical School, Singapore, and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

He is now a Research Fellow at NTU, and his current research focuses on the study of spontaneous and enzymatic brain protein post-translational modifications that can be implicated in the neuropathology and neuropathogenesis of dementia. The analysis of extracellular vesicles (EVs) and their essential role(s) in intercellular communication in the CNS during healthy and disease states is also part of his research priorities.

As a clinical neuropsychologist, Xavier is interested in promoting and divulging the importance of his discoveries and combining reliable neuropsychological screenings with reliable clinical biomarkers to differentially diagnose aging cognitive decline from incipient stages of mild cognitive impairment and other dementia subtypes in the populations of risk.
