Jasneet Parmar - Neuroscience Researcher
B. Med Sci (Hons in Pharmacology)
Jasneet Parmar completed her B Med Sci (Hons in Pharmacology) in 2013 at UNSW Sydney, Australia. During her Honours program she studied the influence of hypoxic preconditioning, a neuroprotective therapy, on inflammation, in a model of neonatal brain injury in the lab of Dr. Nicole Jones.
She began her PhD in 2014 at the Translational Neuroscience Facility, Department of Physiology at UNSW Sydney, Australia under the mentorship of Prof Gary Housley. During her candidature she worked extensively on the development of a brain injury model. In parallel she also studied the putative contribution of a calcium permeable ion channel in brain injury as a potential neuroprotective target for cerebellar strokes.
Jasneet joined Nyrada Inc. in 2018 as a Neuroscience Researcher and is working alongside Dr. Benny Evison and Dr. Alexandra Suchowerska on the NYX-104 and NYX-205. With her background in brain injury, she hopes to find new avenues for development of novel drug targets for mitigating brain injury and other neurological deficits.
