Personal profile


Prof Gilles Guillemin has been working in the fields of Neuroimmunology and tryptophan metabolism for more than 20 years.

He is the Co-funder of the MND and Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Centre, The Co-funder of the Macquarie University MND Biobank and the Head of the Neuroinflammation group at Macquarie University.

Prof Guillemin’s team is one of the world’s leading research groups working on the involvement of the tryptophan catabolism (via the kynurenine pathway) in human neurodegenerative diseases.

He demonstrated the roles of this pathway in multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, suicide…

He is the President of the International Society for Tryptophan Research and Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal for Tryptophan Research.

He has published more than 200 peer reviewed scientific articles. His current h-index is currently 51 and has more than 10.000 citations.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
