Wouter Peelaerts, PhD

Wouter Peelaerts, PhD

KU Leuven, Belgium

Dr. Wouter Peelaerts is an experienced neuroscientist with special expertise in degenerative brain diseases. He earned his Ph.D. in biomedical sciences from KU Leuven and subsequently completed a postdoctoral fellowship there focused on neurobiology and gene therapy under the mentorship of Prof. Veerle Baekelandt. His efforts helped uncover new insights that further link the abnormal protein alpha-synuclein to neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Parkinson’s and Multiple System Atrophy. He has received numerous accolades for his research, including the 2020 JiePie award for MSA research, a prestigious 2017–2019 Fulbright Fellowship and the ATCG and ID&T postdoctoral award. In 2017, he joined the lab of Dr. Patrik Brundin at Van Andel Institute, MI, USA. His current research focuses on drug repurposing and how infections can trigger Multiple System Atrophy. Dr. Peelaerts serves on the Scientific and Medical Research Advisory Committee for the six charities that make up MSA United International Consortium, which includes Defeat MSA Alliance (USA). He is Chair of the Alliance’s Scientific Research Section.

“Defeat MSA Canada is an amazing organization, giving voice to those affected by this little known, devastating disease. This grass roots effort grew as a work of love and devotion by its founders. Indescribable grief and suffering has been channeled into positive action to help fund vital research and provide support for others dealing with MSA. It is an important and worthwhile organization and I hope to see it continue to serve more and more Canadians in need.”

Elena Fracassa, MS

“The charity remains true to its objective of supporting patients and families living with this dreadful disease, through supporting vital research and helping to network to connect families affected by MSA. This disease does not have a marathon or a 5k run in its name; the charity uses an intriguing device: a traveling shoe as a symbolic marathon to spread awareness among lay public about this devastating disease. “

Dr. Pratik Bhattacharya, MD, MPH
