Nathalie Doorenweerd studied Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences at Leiden University in the Netherlands (2005-2011) specialised in neuroscience and pharmacology. She obtained a PhD investigating cognitive impairment in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy taking structural, metabolic and functional aspects of the brain into account (June 2017).
As post-doctoral researcher she is currently employed by the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre, Newcastle University, Newcastle Upon Tyne and the C.J.
