In Memoriam

Jeremy Ullmann, PhD

Jeremy Ullmann, PhD 
Research Fellow

Dr. Ullmann joined the Epilepsy Genetics Program in January of 2016. He was a neuroscientist with extensive experience in imaging and zebrafish models of neurodegenerative disease. Dr Ullmann received his BSc in Biology from Brandeis University in 2003 and a PhD in neuroscience and bio-imaging at The University of Queensland in Brisbane Australia in 2010. He completed his first post-doc at the Centre for Advanced Imaging (The University of Queensland) under Prof. David Reutens where he developed the world’s highest high-resolution models of pre-clinical animal models and examined the correlation of febrile seizures and temporal lobe epilepsy later in life. As part of the Epilepsy Genetics Program he performed high-throughput genetic screens to validate candidate epilepsy genes. Dr. Ullmann tragically passed away unexpectedly on February 10, 2019 in a hiking accident at Mt. Washington.  Dr. Ullmann's full obituary is available at: https://www.demunn.com/obituary/jeremy-p-ullmann.
