Bénédicte Défontaines holds an M.D. degree, advanced degrees in Biochemistry, Neurology and Neurosciences. In 2004 she create the Aloïs network, a new community-based pathway for the diagnosis and care of patients with cognitive disorders fully complementary to the existing system but more flexible and less traumatizing for patients and less costly for the State. Thanks to the creation of a consultable protocol database, the number of patients included in research protocols has risen each year. In 2014 she launched the first remote memory consultation. She plans to expand this approach to French people living abroad. She is an Ashoka Fellow.
