Jessica S. Sadick, PhD

NYU School of Medicine

Jessica received her PhD in Biotechnology from Brown University in 2018. As a graduate student, she developed novel methods to enrich for and characterize cell subpopulation protein profiles. She ultimately applied these tools to study cell type-specific contributions in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). As a postdoctoral fellow in the Liddelow Lab at NYU Langone, Jessica studies the role of reactive astrocytes and other glia populations in neurodegenerative disease and aging. She aims to generate glia-specific -omic data sets as a means to identify novel therapeutic targets to alleviate, and ideally reverse, neurodegenerative damage.
