About Isaac Bul Deng
Isaac Bul Deng, Ph.D. joins us as a postdoctoral associate in the Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Neuroscience (LNN) with Dr. Farrer. Dr. Deng earned his first degree in Medical Science as a Joint degree from the Australian National University and the University of South Australia, Australia in 2016. He obtained his PhD in Medical Science in 2022 from the University of South Australia, Australia, where his thesis focused on the characterization of lipopolysaccharide animal models of Parkinson’s disease. He is inspired to use his knowledge of in-vivo models of Parkinson’s disease to better understand its pathophysiological mechanisms, and to facilitate the identification of disease biomarkers and effective therapeutic approaches. Other research topics of interest include Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and neuropsychiatric disorders. Isaac enjoys playing basketball, reading and outdoor recreational activities.
