Dr. Grishchuk obtained her Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology in Moscow, Russia.

During her post-doctoral training at the Brain Mind Institute, EPFL, and University of Lausanne in Switzerland, she studied endocytosis and autophagy in neurotoxicity and neurodegeneration.

Yulia then joined Dr. Slaugenhaupt’s laboratory at MGH where she continued her research of lysosomal and autopahgy dysfunction in neurodegeneration. Yulia leads a lab working on therapy development for a rare pediatric neurologic diseases. Her primary focus is on lysosomal disease, mucolipidosis IV, and autophagy disease, beta-propeller protein associated neurodegeneration (BPAN).
