Jerusha Brendel, Research Associate

Jerusha works with the discovery biology team to learn more about progranulin and the underlying biology of FTD-GRN. She’s deeply motivated by patients with neurodegenerative disease and the ordeals they and their loved ones face as the disease progresses. She is inspired to pursue new therapies that help alleviate the pain and suffering caused by neurodegeneration.

Having always had an interest in psychology and neurodegenerative diseases, Jerusha pursued a research career so that she could contribute to the discoveries that could have a potential meaningful impact on patients. Her interdisciplinary training in both medical and basic research has equipped her with the ability to understand neurodegenerative disease from multiple scientific perspectives.
