Personal profile


Dr Janet van Eersel received her PhD from the Department of Pathology at the University of Sydney in 2010. She then completed post doctorate positions at the Brain and Mind Research Centre (University of Sydney, until 2013) and the Dementia Research Unit at the University of NSW. In 2018, Janet joined Macquarie University as a Group Leader in the Dementia Research Centre. Dr van Eersel's research utilises various biological models to investigate mechanisms contributing to the development of dementia. Using this information, the team then develops various drugs and therapies with the aim of developing an effective treatment for dementia. 

Research interests

The research of Dr van Eersel focuses on the pathology and mechanisms underlying common forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease and Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration. To study these disorders, Dr van Eersel utilises multiple techniques and methods including animal models, cell culture, molecular biology, histology and biochemistry. Most recently, Dr van Eersel has started to focus in on the protein Tau and how it can potentially be secreted from neurons within the brain and the role that endoplasmic reticulum stress may play in this process.
