Johns Hopkins University
Jason Chua, MD, PhD is an assistant professor in the Division of Movement Disorders and Department of Neurology at Johns Hopkins University. He completed his MD and PhD at the University of Michigan Medical School, followed by completion of his residency in neurology, fellowship in movement disorders, and NINDS R25 research fellowship at the University of Michigan. His current research is focused on discovering neuron-specific regulatory effectors of macroautophagy. His long-term goal is to identify mechanistic targets that selectively modulate autophagy in neurons to enhance proteolytic clearance of pathogenic aggregates and inform therapeutic strategies for neurodegenerative diseases.
