Dr. Javier Peralta Ramos is a postdoctoral research fellow in the research group led by Prof. Michal Schwartz in the Department of Neurobiology. His work focuses on advancing an innovative next-generation immunotherapy treatment for clinical use. The treatment harnesses the immune system to fight against Alzheimer’s disease, and is advancing a blood-based biomarker to predict the onset and development of this neurodegenerative disorder.
Dr. Peralta Ramos was born in Buenos Aires and earned his PhD with the highest honors from the National University of Córdoba, Argentina. A former Visiting Research Fellow from the Charité in Germany, and Visiting PhD candidate from KU Leuven in Belgium, Dr. Peralta Ramos has received several fellowships, including an EMBO short-term fellowship, in recognition of his PhD studies which addressed the role of the immune system in the brain during neuroinflammation.
Dr. Peralta Ramos is a ‘nature-holic’ whose partner, Dr. Denise Kviatcovsky, is a postdoctoral research fellow in Prof. Eran Elinav’s lab in the Department of Immunology. He has two children, Bautista and Juan Cruz.
