He is the Director of the Neurochemistry Laboratory in the Psychiatry/ NEUROSCIENCE Department at Massachusetts General Hospital. Jack is an Associate Professor at the Harvard Medical School, with a funded track-record in top scientific journals (Cell, J. Biol. Chem. and PNAS). His peer-reviewed publications won him a Zenith award from the Alzheimer’s Association and awards from the Michael J Fox Foundation, each on translational control by iron and related disease progression. He contributes to treat Mn toxicity and PD by pharmacological modulation of iron homeostasis towards neural survival.
