Natalie Landeck, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow at National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Aging

Location: Bethesda, MD United States

Natalie Landeck, PhD, received her doctoral degree in neuroscience from the Lund University, Sweden, in 2016. As part of her doctoral training, she studied modifications and toxicity of alpha-synuclein -- a sticky protein that clumps in the brains of people with Parkinson's disease -- in vivo using research tools called viral vectors. In 2017, she joined the Laboratory of Neurogenetics at the National Institute on Aging as a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Landeck currently studies the effect of mutations (changes) in genes associated with neurodegeneration in vivo. Her focus is predominantly on alpha-synuclein, its function and interaction with other disease-causing proteins and the underlying processes involving alpha-synuclein that lead to Parkinson's disease.
