Dr. Justin Piro graduated from Dartmouth's Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) program in 2011. Following his work studying prion biology and protein misfolding in the Biochemistry department, Justin joined Pfizer's Neuroscience Research Unit as a postdoctoral fellow. His postdoctoral work was focused on understanding endocannabinoid metabolism and its impact on driving inflammation in the context of neurodegeneration and neurological injury. This work led to the development of novel inhibitors of endocannabinoid metabolism that were advanced into Ph1 clinical trials.
