Asad Jan, MBBS, PhD

Assistant Professor at Aarhus University

Location: Aarhus Denmark

Dr. Asad Jan completed professional studies in clinical medicine (Liaquat University of Medical Health Sciences in Pakistan) and a PhD in life sciences (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). He undertook a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and in 2017, he joined Aarhus University in Denmark under the auspices of a Marie Curie Fellowship. His laboratory studies human neurological diseases, in particular Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD). In close collaboration with several international academic and clinical teams, Dr. Jan has contributed to novel insights into the pathogenic mechanism of AD and PD, including disrupted regulation of mRNA translation and molecular signatures of impaired redox homeostasis. His approach encompasses a wide range of methodology including cellular and animal models, rigorous histopathological analyses of tissue specimens and candidate validation in patient-derived gene expression datasets.
