Tomas Jorda completed his bachelor’s degree in Health Biology at the University of Alcala de Henares in Madrid in 2013. After an Erasmus in Amsterdam, he enrolled in a neuroscience Master’s degree course at the Vrije University in the Netherlands, where he carried out projects related to presynaptic molecular mechanisms at the Vrije University medical center (VUmc) and the Center of neurogenomics and cognitive research (CNCR).
Tomas started his PhD with a Marie-Curie fellowship in 2016 at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Neurosciences in Bordeaux. His research project focused on the physiological and pathological roles of the amyloid precursor protein at the presynapse in mouse and human brains. His PhD project was part of a program called SyDAD (Synaptic degeneration in Alzheimer disease), which allowed him to perform part of his research at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.
In 2021 Tomas joined the University of Geneva as a neurobiologist and is part of the Wyss Center’s brain mapping project team. His main interests are focused in the the development and optimization of methods to map the human brain at the cellular and molecular level.
