Jimmy George

I completed my BSc in Biotechnology from Bangalore University, India in 2009, followed by my Master’s in Molecular Medicine from University of Sheffield, UK in 2010. After this I went on to do my Ph.D. in Experimental Biology and Neuroscience from the University of Coimbra, Portugal, and University of Bordeaux, France, where I worked in deciphering the interaction of Purines with Neuron-Glia in Neuroinflammation. My first postdoctoral fellowship was at Northwestern University, US, unravelling the role of autophagy in neurodegeneration. I joined the Kalia lab in 2021 to be part of their ongoing research to uncover the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s Disease.
