BRIEF EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND
I am actually a PhD candidate in the Department of Biological Sciences of the Faculty of Science of the University of Ngaoundere. In 2008, I obtained with Honor a DEA (Diplome D’ Etudes Approfondies ) in Zoology and Animal Physiology option Animal Physiology at University of Yaoundé I. Prior to this, I obtained in 2005 the MAITRÎSE diploma in Zoology and Animal Physiology at the University of Ngaoundere. In 2004 I graduated from the University of Ngaoundere with a Bachelor degree in Biological Sciences.

Kouémou E. Nadège is a holder of a DEA (Diplome d’Etudes Approfondies) in Zoology and Animal Physiology obtained in the University of Yaoundé I in 2008. Actually, she is a PhD candidate in neuropharmacology in the Faculty of Science of the University of Ngaoundere. And her PhD work title is Neuroprotective effect of a Cameroonian plant against neurodegeneration: case of Alzheimer’s disease; behavioral and pharmacological approaches.
Her current research is concerns by the exploration of the protective effects of some Cameroonian plants extracts against central nervous system disorders (Epilepsy, Anxiety, Depression…) using different animal’s models. She is particularly interested in dementia in the elderly; the study of the mechanism through with plants extracts can enhance learning and memory processes. With a great focus on the etiology, the physiopathology and the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
She is a member of national and international organizations which promote and foster research and teaching in the domain of neuroscience like, CAMANE (Cameroon Association for Neurosciences), IBRO (International Brain Research Organization), SONA (Society of Neuroscientists of Africa), and The Grass Foundation). She is bilingual and speaks and writes English as well as French.
