Jill Weimer, PhD – Sanford Research
Dr. Jill Weimer is a developmental neuroscientist and oversees the management and continued development of the translational arm of Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She started at Sanford Research in 2009, and her research program focuses on the molecular mechanisms mediating development of the cerebral cortex and how disruption in these processes can lead to a whole host of neural pediatric disorders, including Batten’s disease and Neurofibromatosis Type 1.
Work in Dr. Weimer’s lab helped lead to the first ever gene therapy trial programs for CLN3 and CLN6 – Batten disease. In June 2019, Dr. Weimer joined the Amicus Therapeutics team as the Senior Vice President of Discovery Research and Gene Therapy Science and now serves as the Chief Science Officer.
