Sarah Fritschi, PhD

I started to focus on research related to Alzheimer disease in 2010, when conducting my PhD thesis work in the laboratory of Prof. Mathias Jucker at the University of Tuebingen, Germany. During that time, my work focused on the characterization of the Aβ peptide in regard to its prion-like properties. In 2015, I graduated from the University of Tuebingen, Germany, with highest honor. Later in 2015, I joined the laboratory of Dr. David Holtzman, at Washington University in St. Louis, as a postdoctoral research fellow to examine the interplay of the sleep-wake cycle and Alzheimer disease.
