Spring Behrouz | The Dynamic Future of Neuroscience
Dr. Spring Behrouz is a self-confessed neuroscience nerd who is passionate about finding meaningful solutions for neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
She received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Michigan State University, and completed postdoctoral work at Mayo Clinic, where she characterized genetic models of Parkinson's disease and was part of the team that discovered a new pathogenic mutation in VPS35. Her Ph.D. work implemented cutting edge laser capture, microarray, and in vivo siRNA techniques to identify protective genomic changes in Parkinson’s models.
Dr. Behrouz is the co-founder and chairman of NeuroInitiative, LLC.
