Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Columbia University Medical Center
Dr. Nuriel is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Columbia University Medical Center in the department of Pathology and Cell Biology and the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer’s disease and the Aging Brain. Dr. Nuriel received his Ph.D. from the Weill Cornell Graduate School for Medical Sciences in 2013, where his thesis work involved the use of mass spectrometry to investigate the ability of nitrosative and oxidative stress to modify proteins during numerous disease states. After completing his thesis work, Dr. Nuriel joined the laboratory of Dr. Karen Duff, a recognized leader in the Alzheimer’s field. Dr. Nuriel’s primary focus in the laboratory is the use of multi-omics platforms (transcriptomics, lipidomics and metabolomics) to study the role of APOE4 in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. These studies have led to intriguing new areas of investigation on APOE4 and Alzheimer’s disease, including the current study funded by Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.
