Paul Chazot

Dr Paul Chazot is Senior Lecturer at Durham University’s Biophysical Sciences Institute, where he has been researching novel treatments for the major pathologies of the nervous system.

Currently, Paul is working on a ground-breaking infrared light therapy that has the potential to help people with dementia, involving a specially adapted medical device that delivers infrared light deep into the brain, triggering nerve cell repair and increasing blood flow to the brain.

Dr Chazot is also the University lead for the Durham University spin-out company Nevrargenics, who have developed exciting new drug leads (RAR-M) for a range of neurodegenerative diseases.
