DOMINIC JULIAN, MS
MD/PhD Student, University of Arizona College of Medicine - Phoenix
As an aspiring child neurologist and physician-scientist, Dom joined the Kruer Lab to study genetic causes of neurodevelopmental disabilities and neurodegeneration. His clinical research with the team involves identifying novel genetic alterations in children that contribute to the pathogenesis of cerebral palsy and exploring the impact of these disease-causing mutations with neural stem cell models at the laboratory bench. He is completing his PhD training in neurodegeneration research at the Barrow Neurological Institute. After finishing medical school and residency, Dom hopes to build up his own lab and clinical practice focused on helping families and children suffering from neurological conditions. He is thrilled to get to learn from his brilliant and passionate teammates in the Kruer Lab during his training at UACOM-Phoenix.
