Dr. Diane Nakamura


Postdoctoral Researcher
Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University

Hi! My name is Diane and I'm a postdoctoral researcher at McGill University. My current research aims to identify novel drug targets in rare neurodegenerative diseases. I have a strong background in molecular and cell biology stemming from my PhD in Neuroscience (McGill University) and MSc in Anatomy & Cell Biology (Queen's University). Over the past 9 years, I have collaborated with companies including Abbott and Revalesio, and directed extensive industry-based research projects. Today, I'm interested in pursuing a leadership role in industry that combines my interests in drug discovery and large-scale project management. I'm eager to connect with people currently working in industrial roles, as well as other postdocs looking to transition out of academia. Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn:
