Monther Abu-Remaileh, PhD, is an assistant professor of chemical engineering and, by courtesy, of genetics at Stanford University. He is an expert in lysosome biology and metabolism, and his team develops and uses multidisciplinary approaches, including metabolomics, proteomics and functional genomics, to study the biochemical functions of the lysosome. His lab is committed to applying these tools to provide molecular understanding of the lysosomal dysfunction in Parkinson's disease, which has been implicated in disease pathology.
Dr. Abu-Remaileh earned his B.Sc. in Genetics from Jordan University of Science and Technology and his doctorate from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and then completed his postdoctoral training at MIT.
